The mission of Atlanta Fellowship of Humanity is to conduct humanist gatherings, to advance humanism in the world, and to engage in humanitarian efforts. We seek to spread the light of reason, the warmth of compassion and the glow of hope.
The fellowship upholds the ideal that beliefs should be based on objective evidence. Therefore, we do not endorse belief in the supernatural. We define spirituality as that which is helpful in developing character and lifting the human spirit toward the highest expression of humanity we can imagine.
