Every human being is born equal
Humanism is about showing respect and tolerance for others, thinking for ourselves, seeking knowledge and justice, and trying to lead and promote happy, decent lives for everyone.
Now more than ever, the world needs humanism
Humanists are committed to the protection and promotion of human rights and equality. These rights represent shared values rooted in our common humanity and our shared human needs, transcending cultural and religious traditions. Through them, we can advance a better world for everyone.
Our shared humanist principles of justice and of valuing the dignity of each individual lead us to support equality and oppose discrimination. Humanists have been deeply involved in campaigning against discrimination – from homophobia to racism – for decades.
Now more than ever, the world needs humanism.
