2016 Recent/Past Events:

Humanist Discussion Group

On November 17th ELH gathered to discuss humanist issues in the wake of the 2016 election.  Attendance was more than double the usual for this type of event.  Humanists are fired up and ready for action!  We discussed the latest political developments and went over our new Action List for the (Un)Faithful, a comprehensive list of actions you can take to support or get involved in humanist, progressive, human rights and social justice causes.  You can find it here.  Be sure to click on the links, in turquoise, for lots of interesting ideas and backup content. 

Specific suggestions for action from the group included scheduling a face-to-face group meeting with our congressman, donut sales at the farmer’s market (we end up being too small a group to take this on this year – maybe next), holding a garage sale or other activity to benefit our choice of social justice organization, having a joint event with area black and Hispanic nontheist groups.  We’ll be working to set some of those in motion.  Watch this space.

Halloween Social Gathering
We celebrated the fall season and Halloween on October 27th at Shanahan's in Forest Park. We gathered and dined and shared some amusing activities and seasonal treats.  Great conversation and company.  Don't miss our next one! 

Humanist Discussion Group
ELH met on September 22nd at Shanahan's to discuss the election and other items of interest to our Humanist community.  Great conversation!

Trivia Night at Connolly's
Our August social event was trivia night at Connolly's Public House, 1109 South Blvd., Oak Park.  Two ELH teams of 6 battled it out against other teams and won the top two spots.  Such a popular activity that we are planning another evening like it soon!

ary Book Fair Volunteer Days
ELH worked three volunteer shifts the last week of July sorting books, and cutting, carrying and arranging boxes for the Oak Park Public Library book sale.

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.
