HSGP is a warm and welcoming community of humanists, atheists, agnostics, free-thinkers, and non-theists of all types. The group aims to enrich the lives of any who join us through explorations in science, philosophy, history, and the arts.

Our members have diverse and passionate interests in topics such as separation of church and state, evolution, technology, and environmental issues.
