About HFSD

Our mission is to advance public awareness of Humanism and of its principals of social progress through dialog, acts of compassion, pursuit of justice, and promotion of critical thinking.

Secular humanism embraces human reason, ethics, justice, and philosophical naturalism while specifically rejecting religious dogma, supernaturalism, pseudoscience, and superstition as the bases of morality and decision making.

We unite secular humanists and ethical atheists and skeptics in San Diego County of California.

Becoming Nonprofit President

After I was elected to be the HFSD President, I shared it with friends on facebook:
Dear friends, some of you might know that I was elected to be the president of HFSD (Humanist Fellowship of San Diego). Two good people have joined the board with me, and all six of us are waiting with a public release until the complex transition is over.

It was not easy for me to accept this honorable responsibility: my experience with non-profits made me skeptical, I was afraid my time could be wasted. I can dedicated only a limited number of hours to the cause and need to do quite a bit of work in the beginning (documentation, website, finance, meetup, etc.)

In general, my position will empathize human potential and common values. I intend to do my best in keeping this organization clearly structured, cooperative but independent, welcoming but with standards, and uniting rather than polarizing.

I welcome all suggestions. However, if someone wishes to discuss a relevant topic with me privately, please explain why first (I am receiving strange complains / requests). I want to create an environment in which we all can rise above our interpersonal problems and do something inspiring together.
