The Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago just launched its first billboard campaign today on the north side of the city:
“We want to let nonbelievers know that we have a long-established, welcoming community here in the Chicago area that is dedicated to reason,” said Lisa Crowe, Publicity Chair of the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago.
Lisa added: “We would like to encourage Chicagoland’s nonbelievers, whether they identify as humanists, atheists or agnostics, to join us at our meetinghouse for our fascinating and informative Sunday morning programs, to check out our secular Sunday school, and to consider using our officiants for weddings, memorials, and baby namings. And we welcome all to participate in our community’s social and community service activities.”
I’ve spoken to this group a couple of times over the years, and it’s always a pleasure. Even though the billboard might make you think this is a group focused on atheism, the people there do so much more than that. They’re interested in living a great life and religion just doesn’t come into play. If you’re in the Skokie area, check them out!
