Founded in 1941 and located in Washington D.C., the American Humanist Association advocates progressive values and equality for humanists, atheists, freethinkers, and the non-religious. The AHA has over 20,000 members and supporters and over 160 local chapter groups across the country.

With our extensive local and national media contacts, our lobbying and coalition efforts on Capitol Hill, and the efforts of our grassroots activists, we ensure that the humanist point of view is represented—the idea that you can be good without a belief in a god.

Our adjunct organizations & programs defend the Jeffersonian wall of separation between church and state (Appignani Humanist Legal Center), advance humanist thought in the realm of education (Kochhar Humanist Education Center), provide aid to those most in need (Humanist Charities), and apply humanism to daily life (Humanist Society).

In addition to traditional media, we engage the public through a heavy online presence, which includes our profiles on Facebook, Twitter (@AmericnHumanist), Flickr, Tumblr, and channels on YouTube and Vimeo. We also publish the award-winning magazine The Humanist, a weekly e-newsletter Humanist Network News and monthly podcast The Humanist Hour.

Our annual conference draws hundreds of humanists from across the U.S. to hear world-renowned speakers, connect with fellow nontheists and have a say in the future of the organization. We also work alongside progressive allies—both secular and religious—to work on issues of common concern.
