Secular Humanist Alliance of ChicagoApril 20, 2010
Last night was the third meeting of the Secular Humanist group I’m co-founding with NonProphet Status, and we finally have a name! Soon enough, you’ll be hearing more about the Secular Humanist Alliance of Chicago, or SHAC. We are meeting every other Monday, and still gathering our collective thoughts to come up with a mission statement. As soon as we do that, there will be a blog, a mailing list, events, and hopefully you! Our membership, so far small but enthusiastic, has already grown to twice the size it was for the first meeting. In our discussions, we’ve come up with ideas for community service, providing camaraderie and an open, safe space, collaborating with other secular and non-secular groups. Stay tuned!
