Celebrate and Give

"Being a Humanist means trying to behave decently without expectation

of rewards or punishment after you are dead."

Upcoming Events:

Mock Debate

In lieu of discussion group this month ELH will hold our first ever Humanist Mock Debate at Shanahan's, 7353 Madison St. in Forest Park on Thursday evening, May 19th. Join us for the fun! We'll form teams and debate issues among ourselves from both the theist and nontheist perspectives. Enjoy the evening as a debater, a team member, or a spectator -- your choice. The results should be entertaining and educational, and provide good practice in discussing and defending humanist principles.  We'll meet at 7:00 p.m. in the back room, behind the French doors.

American Humanist Association Conference

End of the Line Humanists is one of three local chapters involved in sponsoring the 75th annual American Humanist Association conference, taking place in Chicago at the McCormick Place Hyatt on Memorial Day weekend. Those interested in attending can read all about it here.  You can register for the whole conference or purchase a one-day pass by clicking here.  Enjoy three days of Humanist speakers, activities, banquets, and fellowship with other members of our parent organization.  Look for us at the registration table.

A Day in Our Village Community Fair

End of the Line Humanists will have a table at Oak Park's A Day in Our Village, an outdoor fair which showcases local community organizations, on Sunday, June 5th, 11:00-6:00.   We will talk with the public, distribute humanist information, sign up new members and make some new friends. Our "Guess the Dinosaur" activity and coloring page and candy giveaway for kids are always a big hit, as is our evolution-themed t-shirt giveaway. Help us work the booth for a few hours (contact cynthia@elhumanists.org if you'd like to) or just drop by and say hello!
