What is Humanism?
Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
Library Book Fair Volunteer Days
ELH is Volunteering! Oak Park Public Library needs volunteers to sort books and do assorted tasks in the weeks before its annual book sale at Oak Park River Forest High School (to be held July 29th and 30th). End of the Line Humanists is planning to work three shifts sorting books, and cutting, carrying and arranging boxes (you can pretty much choose your task.)
ELH volunteer shifts are:
Join us for one shift or all three. Enter at the main entrance and go straight back past the main stairway to the cafeteria and sign in with the book fair staff. We'll be wearing our dark turquoise End of the Line Humanists t-shirts, so we'll be easy to find. If you have an ELH t-shirt, please wear it. We'd like to show our community that humanists are stepping up to help and serve.

All those in attendance wanted to do it again. Watch our website for our fall Mock Debate.
