About Us

End of the Line Humanists was formed in December, 2013 as a chartered chapter of the American Humanist Association.  Humanists are "good without a god," nontheists committed to living ethical and compassionate lives.  

Our chapter name reflects our location in the Oak Park/Forest Park, IL area, which is the farthest point west for Chicago's Blue Line and Green Line elevated trains.  We welcome new members, and our numbers are growing steadily as more people find and join us.

Each AHA chapter has its own composition and character, as determined by the interests and goals of its members.  Some of ELH's are:

Members are free to choose their level of involvement and areas of interest, and their input is encouraged.  This is a wonderful opportunity to build community, have fun and find purpose with other nonreligious individuals.  We hope you'll join us!

Humanism and Its Aspirations

Humanism is a  progressive philosophy of life that, without theism or other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.  

The following manifests a consensus of what we believe:

We work to uphold the equal enjoyment of human rights and civil liberties in an open, secular society and find that humanity has the ability to progress toward its highest ideals.  The responsibility for our lives and the kind of world in which we live is ours and ours alone.
