The American Humanist Association strives to bring about a progressive society where being good without a god is an accepted and respected way to live life. We are accomplishing this through our defense of civil liberties and secular governance, by our outreach to the growing number of people without traditional religious faith, and through a continued refinement and advancement of the humanist worldview.
Humanism encompasses a variety of nontheistic views (atheism, agnosticism, rationalism, naturalism, secularism, and so forth) while adding the important element of a comprehensive worldview and set of ethical values
Fredericksburg Secular Humanists (FSH) can trace its beginnings to the the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fredericksburg (UUFF) and the Unitarian Universalist Infidels (UUI). In the fall of 2002, a group within the Infidels formed FSH. The group began meeting in the local library, determined to form an independent group which would be separate from any religious organization. The Fredericksburg Secular Humanists (FSH) were pleased to be accepted as the eighth chapter of WASH in 2006
This sponsorship was made possible by Fred McCoy, a long time FSH member and former WASH Board Member,
