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 34,000 members and supporters and over 225 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 and programs defend the Jeffersonian wall of separation between church and state (Appignani Humanist Legal Center), advance humanist thought in the realm of education (AHA Center for Education), provide aid to those most in need (Foundation Beyond Belief), apply humanism to daily life (Humanist Society), and affirm humanism’s commitment to social justice advocacy (Black Humanist Alliance, Feminist Humanist Alliance, Latinx Humanist Alliance, LGBTQ Humanist Alliance). The Center for Freethought Equality is a sister organization of the American Humanist Association dedicated to lobbying and political advocacy. Additionally, our Humanism for All Project aims to support humanist inmates in correctional institutions.
