We are proud to present our new mission statement:
The American Ethical Union creates, nurtures, and inspires ethical humanist communities to foster a world that is democratic, compassionate, just, and sustainable.
Ethical Humanism/Ethical Culture is an alternative to traditional religion, often referred to as a non-theistic or humanist Movement because it focuses on ethics over speculative theology. Our members work to foster a world that honors the worth of every individual, nurtures ethical relationships, and builds social justice. We believe in deed before creed and seek partnerships with groups dedicated to empowering everyone through service and activism. We advocate for reason, compassion, and rational thinking so that we can celebrate with and support each other through life.
Thank you to the dedicated members who developed our new mission to better represent our work!
