Humanism

A new secular community group with very humanist core values is forming in Boston, MA

A group is forming in Boston to provide a secular alternative to faith-based communities, centered around very humanist values of compassion, reason, and acceptance. We think that there are people who want the same kind of community you find in churches but without the dogma or supernaturalism. A community based on shared values of reason and compassion, not of shared belief.

If this is interesting to you, check out our website at www.bostonoasis.org!

We are currently looking for people to join our launch team, people who will want to join us once we're up and running, and (perhaps equally importantly) people who want to contribute to our GoFundMe campaign so we can launch and start regular gatherings as soon as possible.
