About the Humanist Society


The Humanist Society applies humanism to daily life through a unique celebrant program, education, and community involvement.

Those who are attracted to a positive, progressive philosophy, unencumbered by the rigidity of traditional religions, embrace the vibrant lifestance of humanism, the radical idea that you can be good without a god. The Humanist Society bolsters humanism’s rational philosophy by focusing on community and daily living.

Recognizing the important role life occasions play in individual and community life, the Humanist Society prepares Humanist Celebrants to lead ceremonial observances across the nation and worldwide. Celebrants provide millions of Americans an alternative to traditional religious weddings, memorial services, and other life-cycle events. Celebration of life is central to a meaningful humanist philosophy, and Humanist Celebrants officiate significant celebrations vital to humanist life.

Be sure to explore the possibility of finding a celebrant to perform a ceremony important to you, or consider becoming a celebrant yourself!

To facilitate this process, the Humanist Society offers different endorsement options, including a path for those considering a one-time experience, those wishing to be regular celebrants as well as associate celebrants, lay leaders, chaplains, and secular invocators.

The Humanist Society also aims to bolster growth at the grassroots level by supporting the all movement efforts to develop strong communities and community leaders. Strong humanist communities will empower local humanist groups with the ability to reach out to a greater population of people by providing educational programs, regular communal celebrations, and meaningful social interaction with fellow humanists.
