Welcome to the Hartford Area Humanists web site.
Hartford Area Humanists is a community for humanists, atheists, agnostic, freethinkers, skeptics and others in the area around Greater Hartford, Connecticut. We are a chapter of the American Humanist Association and a member of the Connecticut Coalition of Reason. We enjoy close ties with the local chapter of American Atheists, Connecticut Valley Atheists, as well as humanist discussion groups based at Unitarian-Universalist societies around Hartford.
Hartford Area Humanists began as a series of dinner meetings organized by the Humanist Association of Connecticut before launching itself as a separate organization in April, 2013.
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
