OUR LOGO: SUMUS.

Our logo Sumus (for pronunciation go here) Latin for 'We Are.' The triangle represents the three psychological aspects of the human condition: thought, emotion, and action. The eye symbolizes the leadership humanity possesses in governing their own lives—free from indoctrination and superstition. No god or artificer is coming to save us. We are the change we seek.

INTERSECTIONAL

HUMANISM

What if not having enough religion isn't the problem. What if— having too much faith is the problem. First, let's address what Intersectionality means: 

 

The interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage; a theoretical approach based on such a premise.

(Oxford Dictionary)

 

What is Humanism: 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.

— American Humanist Association

 

Intersectional Humanism is a secular social model addressing the psychological influences religion asserts on gender, sex, and race.
