CHA is for humanists living in the Chattanooga area who want to come and reason together. Humanism is a philosophical and ethical position that emphasizes the value and agency of human beings. As humanists, we prefer to use critical thinking and rationalism to identify and address common human needs. Part of CHA’s goal is to help humanists seek out ways to better the community while working within a secular framework. CHA allows secular people to come together with the knowledge they are among friends.
