The Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago, founded in 1882, is a self-governing, inclusive, caring community­—providing a home to those who seek a rational, compassionate philosophy of life without regard to belief or non-belief in a supreme being. We focus on the ethical values that bring people together, not on the beliefs that keep people apart.

In the spirit of intellectual, philosophical, and artistic freedom, we come together to explore life, nature, and the universe.

Like traditional religious communities, we celebrate births, conduct wedding ceremonies, and host memorial services.

We provide for the ethical education of our children, based on rational, critical thinking.

We believe in working together for a better world, and strive to act so as to bring out the best in others and thereby in ourselves.
