Humanist Network News

 

Humanist Network News, or HNN, is a weekly Internet magazine produced by the American Humanist Association (AHA). A typical edition of HNN contains news, opinion, lifestyle pieces, cartoons and humor...just like a regular newspaper except each piece addresses the nonreligious philosophy of humanism. HNN articles are written by the staff of the AHA and a variety of guest writers. HNN is published every Wednesday.

MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR: Text AHA to 50555 and Join the Humanist Mobile Community

Posted December 05, 2013

Many of you probably share the same experience: Ten years ago, I had a flip phone which I used only for phone calls. Now I can hardly separate myself from my iPhone without calling, texting, checking email, reading the news, even watching movies. But rather than bemoan my bondage to technology, I embrace the opportunity to stay connected in ways I would've never imagined possible.

One of the simplest ways to stay connected to the American Humanist Association is to get updates from us via text message. Simply text AHA to 50555 to join the Humanist Mobile Community and receive breaking news from the American Humanist Association. (We never send more than two (2) text messages a month, and you can unsubscribe at any time by texting STOP to 50555 to STOP. Text HELP to 50555 for HELP. Full terms: mgive.org/T) Last month, our mobile community members got to hear first that former Rep. Barney Frank will be our 2014 Humanist of the Year. What news will December bring?
