Mission & Goals

A Service-Minded Humanist Community in Central Florida.

Tagline: Making a difference, together.

Mission:  BE. brings compassionate atheists, humanists, freethinkers, and other non-religious identities, as well as allies of faith, together to make a difference in the community and overcome stereotypes about non-religious people through service and education.

Objectives:

  • We empower secular individuals to make a difference for the greater community through volunteerism
  • We encourage fellowship and connection among the secular community
  • We serve as resource and advocate for secular, LGBTQ+, and other diverse demographic individuals;
  • We foster active partnerships with other Florida secular organizations;
  • We build bridges across differences by welcoming secular-friendly faith members and partnerships with faith organizations; and
  • We advocate for the inclusion and acceptance of people of non-faith identities by demonstrating that kindness and compassion are ubiquitous human potentials.

Goals:

  • Provide opportunities for the secular community and its allies in Central Florida to engage together in volunteerism and philanthropy
    • Organize at least two events monthly at local charities
  • Reduce discrimination and misconceptions about people of non-faith
    • Gather data on local charities about their policies and practices related to secular inclusion (online portal on our website)
    • Speak to local charities about Humanism
  • Make a difference in our community
    • Track and report service hours and related accomplishments (such as blood drives, toy drives, book drives, etc.)

Core values:

  • Humanism – kindness and compassion are ubiquitous human potentials that transcend faith perspective.  A secular worldview  includes fulfillment, meaning, value, purpose, morality, happiness, personal identity, and connectedness.
  • Service – making a positive difference for our community
  • Gratitude – mindful living; appreciating and inspiring kindness, peace, and joy
  • Inclusiveness – actively promoting inclusion for ALL, including the LGBTQ+, underrepresented minority faith, and non-faith communities.
