WHAT WE DO.

There is an ideal that exemplifies the core of our humanity. It's the lighthouse that connects us at the fundamental level. Hiding in plain sight, it reminds us—in the darkest and brightest times, who we are. And, it's the driving principle encompassing our maxim: To Be Human is Enough. 

Affinis Humanity promotes Intersectional Humanism (IH) as a social model to address and resolve the three main discriminatory acts of humanity caused by religious fundamentalism: gender, sex, and race. Peer-review research has detected a strong correlation between fundamentalism and social prejudices. 

Affinis Humanity encourages healthy dialogue to dismantle stigmas fundamentalist dogmas have constructed. Through apparel,  campaigns, and virtual discussions, we initiate resolutions to improve our awareness and seek resolution.

INTERSECTIONAL

HUMANISM

Intersectional Humanism (IH) is Humanism on steroids. Humanism emphasizes human potential without the supernaturalism of religion. IH focuses on the influences that religious fundamentalism posits on gender, sex, and race. 

The non-religious and people of faith can not afford to ignore the elephant in the room. How can we speak about racism and not the religious underpinnings of the MAAFA [ma-fah: Swahili for disaster]? It describes the African Holocaust and the Transatlantic Slave Trade. How can we talk about sex and be oblivious to homophobic doctrines of Abrahamic religions? Is it possible to continue the narrative of women's rights and yet—not consider that women are property under the guise of fundamentalism?

The taboo label that society has placed on religious dialogue is outdated. Here, nothing is exempt from scrutiny. Our lives depend on it. We talk intersectionality.
