An Alberta where people value evidence and critical thinking, where superstition and prejudice are eliminated, and where science and compassion guide public policy
The Secular Humanists of Calgary is a nonpartisan educational and advocacy organization dedicated to advancing the separation of religion and government as the only way to ensure freedom of religion, including the right to believe or not believe, for all.
Our organization is working to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life here in Alberta, Canada.
We are accomplishing this through our defense of civil liberties and secular governance, by our outreach to the growing number of people without traditional religious faith, and through a continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview.
We are working to increase the visibility and respectability of nontheistic viewpoints within the larger culture, to protect and strengthen secular government as the best guarantee of freedom for all, and to work in coalition with like-minded organizations where joint action is needed to achieve these goals.
We count humanists and other nontheists as the core of our movement but are always willing to work with friends and allies on issues of common concern. The positions we hold and the actions we take are not simply for our own benefit, but for the betterment of all of society and the world in which we live
