Overview


Located in the heart of Washington D.C., the AHA brings together humanists and nontheists of all stripes together toward the cause of progressive social change. We have a base of over 11,000 members and a network of over 100 grassroots organizations. We produce a variety of publications, including our award-winning magazine the Humanist.

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—in the halls of power, down on Main Street, and everywhere in-between.

In addition to traditional media, we engage the public through a heavy online presence, which includes our Rant & Reason blog, profiles on MySpace  and Facebook, twitter  and flickr   accounts, and a channel on YouTube. We also publish a weekly e-zine  and podcast  on a monthly basis.

Our adjunct organizations defend the Jeffersonian wall of separation between church and state (AHLC), advance humanist thought in the realm of education (KHEC), delve into the ethical and moral challenges brought about by advances in biotechnology (ABC), provide aid to those most in need (HC), and apply humanism to daily life (HS).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 work alongside other national organizations in the community of reason, and also reach out to our progressive allies to work on issues of common concern.

Since our founding in 1941, the AHA has served as the voice of humanism.
