This orgs. mission to me is to help people navigate life in a natural world. To help humans find their way in a maze of dark age left overs that still purport a super view. I have been a supporter of this organization for many years and will continue to support it because it is sincere and forthright in all it's positions.

Many years ago when I was twelve years old, I discovered a copy of the Humanist magazine in my public library.

Even though I was a bit young to really appreciate all it had to offer, it opened my eyes to the fact that serious people found morality and meaning in their lives without belief in the supernatural. This realization, and my continued involvement with the Humanist Magazine, have shaped my life in huge and positive ways.

I now work as a professional humanist/atheist (for a different organization) and couldn't be happier with that choice in general and the AHA's contributions to society.

I have been active in AHA since learning about it in 1962. I have been pleased to see it grow from a 4-5,000 membership for its first several decades to over 20,000 today with a growth curve promising expanding growth as it expands programs, outreach and organizational structure.

For me its moral focus is what the world needs to move out of all the ruts and destructive patterns that have been with humanity up to this time.
