The American Humanist Association is proud to be a major sponsor of the Reason Rally, likely the largest gathering of humanists, atheists, and freethinkers in history! On June 4, thousands of humanists, atheists, freethinkers, and allies will gather at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., for a fun-filled day of speakers and entertainers, all to celebrate reason!
If you’re planning to arrive to Washington, D.C. early, stop by the American Humanist Association headquarters at 1777 T Street NW (just a 10-minute walk from the Dupont Circle Metro station) and come meet our staff! That week our offices will only be open Wednesday–Friday from 9am-5pm. Also, Wednesday night, June 1, our DC-AHA chapter is holding its monthly Happy Hour, which you can RSVP for while space remains via Meetup.
On Saturday, June 4, AHA Staff and Volunteers will be in the big tent of booths featuring other sponsoring organizations. Stop by and pick up FREE humanist swagsuch as: stickers proclaiming “Good Without a God,” pins to proudly announce “In ReasonWe Trust,” “Good Without a God” and “I’m a Humanist” posters to announce your humanist pride, bumper stickers, condoms, sunglasses, temporary happy humanist tattoos, and more!
Learn more about our new social justice alliances while you visit us, support the military at the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers booth, or grab a great photo for social media (#humanism) with our nostalgic Polaroid picture frames at the AHA and Humanist Society booths. Be sure to stop by early so you can get all the free items before they run out!
Or treat yourself and your friends to a copy of executive director Roy Speckhardt’s Creating Change Through Humanism, pre-order a copy of the secular, philosophical, and fun Cartoon History of Humanism, or another title from our publishing house, Humanist Press.
We’re thrilled to have speaking for the American Humanist Association on the big stage Dr. Anthony Pinn, board member of the AHA, advisory board member of the Black Humanist Alliance, and the preeminent scholar on African American humanism.
The fun continues on Sunday, June 5 at the Reason Rally Mini-Convention at the Washington Court Hotel!
