We are a secular community in the Portland Oregon area. We accept humanist values as a way to lead meaningful lives and to contribute to the well-being of society. Our mission is to create a thriving local community that promotes and acts upon the ideals of humanism. We offer lectures, discussion groups, social events, and community involvement. We also sponsor events with other freethought groups.
Every Sunday morning we meet at Friendly House in NW Portland. At these meetings, presentations are given by various speakers on topics in four broad areas: Human Well-Being, Science and Reason, Secularism, and Humanities/Culture/Morality. Sundays at HGP also include discussion groups and time for socialization.
HGP is a friendly organization. We welcome people who share our values in learning, growing, and enjoying the company of others in a supportive environment. We welcome atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, skeptics, and those struggling to free themselves from religion. We encourage you to visit our events and to participate in our activities.
