Promoting Inclusiveness: A Humanist Perspective on RAK Week

Many members of our local community identify with populations that are misrepresented and misunderstood.  The LGBTQ+, minority faith, and non-faith communities, while representing a significant portion of our population, are often discluded from discussions of diversity and not valued for the positive contributions they make to the world.

Humanists believe in the value and good in all humans; let’s demonstrate that commitment this RAK week and make a visible difference that strengthens and affirms our positive presence in our community.

#RAKweek2015 is an opportunity for members of the Humanist and other marginalized communities to visibly promote that goodness is in the heart of all.  Dispelling mythology that only promotes hate and misunderstanding is important.  Dr. Martin Luther King said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness.  Only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate.  Only love can do that.”

RAKtivists of Orlando pledge to spread the love and create ripples of kindness that let others know that goodness is in the heart of all.  BE. part of it.  Use our Orlando Humanist RAK cards to “sign” your kind acts with a message of inclusiveness and connectedness.  Include a personal message on the back, or a favourite quote.
