I donate a good portion of my life to helping the Humanist Fellowship of San Diego, which provides educational and social experiences from a humanist perspective to the community at large...free of charge.
There is no paid staff, and all board members and volunteers work without compensation or financial gain. We give ourselves to this work because we believe that Humanism is a force for good in our world, and a superior alternative to religious dogma in navigating the challenges of our ives and the world we live in.
~ Debbie Allen, President
The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego is a proud chapter of the American Humanist Association, the original and largest of the national Humanist organizations, founded in 1941, and represented in San Diego by a succession of chapters since September 1954. HFSD provides stimulating educational opportunities where diverse philosophies and worldviews are explored and evaluated from an enlightened, Humanist perspective. We provide the tools people need to make rational life choices while navigating the seas of conflicting ideas and ideologies. We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our members, fellow Humanists, and our communities.
The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego affirms that human experience is the fundamental source for ultimate values and concerns pertaining to all individuals and societies; that all peoples should live in a free, democratic environment that promotes individual self-determination guided by a Humanistic philosophy built upon principles of rationalism, compassion, and justice.
The mission of The Humanist Fellowship of San Diego is to function as an informative, educational, and social resource for its members and to advance public awareness of Humanism and the acceptance of its principles of social progress through democratic dialog, the promotion of critical thinking, community service, personal acts of compassion, and the pursuit of justice.
