The Humanist Community at Harvard is about to move into what may be the largest space for atheist gatherings on any college campus in the country. They’re calling it the Humanist Hub:
With a professional staff of 10 or more, this beautiful 3,200 square foot space will be a Hub for building “Godless Congregations,” or Humanist communities, locally and nationwide. It is the new headquarters of the Humanist Community at Harvard. It will provide space and support for numerous local secular | nontheistic organizations. And it will house a national think tank working with the American Humanist Association and others to build, educate, and nurture diverse, inclusive, and inspiring multi-generational secular congregations, across the US.
This Sunday marks the Hub’s grand opening and there will be a celebration featuring philosopher Daniel Dennett, attorney David Niose, Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein, and founder of the Global Secular Humanist Movement Facebook page Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar.
All the details for the celebration are here. HCH is asking that all attendees bring a non-perishable food item to support the Greater Boston Food Bank.
Whether you’re a fan of atheist communities or not, this is a huge step forward for atheists in the Boston area. There’s now a central location for gatherings, lectures, debates, and all other events. It’s something religious groups are accustomed to, but our movement is still working to get. If you’d like to support what they’re doing, you can pitch in to support the staff and help pay the rent here.
