Secular Humanists of Western Lake Erie (SHoWLE) values people, emphasizes reason, and focuses on this world. We are a democratic, membership run organization with the purpose of providing a supportive local community for humanists and other nontheists, while promoting ethical and reasonable secular world views through education, community service, outreach, activism, and social events. We are a chapter of the American Humanist Association.
We envision a Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan where secular people are respected and integrated in broader society, live values of reason and compassion, and enjoy a friendly humanist community.
Membership is open to all Humanists in substantial agreement with our mission (noted above), our Humanist principles, and who can subscribe to the AHA’s “Humanism and Its Aspirations” document.
We have two membership plans at this time.
New individual membership $10.00 – one (1) person for one year
New Household membership $20.00 – two or more people living at the same address for one year.
