World Humanist Day is celebrated every year on June 21 by declaration of the American Humanist Association and the International Humanist Ethical Union. It is an opportunity for humanists and humanist organizations to celebrate and inform communities about the positive values of Humanism and to share the global concerns of the Humanist movement.
Humanists lead meaningful, ethical lives and add to the greater good of humanity without reliance on or reference to gods or God. They are colleagues, friends, family, leaders, volunteers, service personnel, team mates, celebrities, teachers & mentors, loved ones or strangers. They are the person at the grocery store who said hello to your adorable baby; the person who let you over in traffic; the old man on the bench in the park feeding pigeons & enjoying the day. Goodness in humans transcends faith perspectives and worldviews. It is a ubiquitous human quality we demonstrate every time we create positive impact – no matter how small – in the world.
In honor of World Humanist Day, BE. Orlando is hosting a service project to engage Orlando Humanists and friends of Humanists to demonstrate & celebrate the goodness of all and to have a direct positive impact in our community. We’re bringing our Artist Heroes project to local at-risk children; the kids will draw and color wolves and will learn about the In Harmony With Nature refuge in Orlando and its residents. Each child will receive an Artist Hero certificate.
We hope that wherever you are and whatever your world view or faith/non-faith perspective, you will find a way to honor the goodness in all humans this June, make a positive difference in your community, and genuinely connect with those around you.
