The Humanists of Greater Portland are proud sponsors of an evening with Humanist Innovators. In this friendly competition we ask people to submit ideas for projects that would make the Portland metro area a better place and can be accomplished for $1,000 or less. The $1,000 is a donation by HGP to accomplish the project described by the winner. The concept for this competition is based on the Awesome Foundation -- whose mission is "forwarding the interest of awesome in the universe, $1,000 at a time." 

2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenges.

Sunday meetings have moved online

Our Sunday speaker programs are now conducted online using Zoom until further notice. There are no public instructions for attending these presentations. HGP members who subscribe to hgpmail receive email invitations that can connect them, if they wish to attend.

We regret that we cannot continue to invite the general public to these programs. But everyone is still invited to view the previously recorded programs found under Past Speakers in the left column.

Humanism is a way of life that guides us to be well and to do good without relying on anything supernatural. It is a rational philosophy that encourages the use of science, reason, and free inquiry. Humanism promotes ethical principles and social compassion to enhance the quality of life 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 educational programs, discussion groups, social events, and community involvement for our members and for the general public. We are based in Portland, Oregon and we serve the Greater Portland area.

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.

In addition, we offer social and intellectual activities throughout the week, all over the Portland Metro area.

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, truth-seekers, skeptics, and all those who value freedom from dogma.

We encourage you to visit any of our events. Membership in HGP is open to everyone who wishes to support humanist ideals.
