Ethical Society of Asheville

The Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville is a non-theist alternative to traditional religion, and a vibrant caring community dedicated to cultivating ethical growth and action in its members and the larger world. Our meeting topics are educational, philosophical and of current interest.

We are inspired by the ideal that the aim of human life is working to create a more humane society. We endeavor to nurture the capacity and responsibility of human beings to act in their personal relationships and in the larger community to help create a better world. Our commitment is to the worth and dignity of the individual and to treating each human being so as to bring out the best in him or her.

We join together to assist each other in developing ethical ideas and ideals, to celebrate life’s joys, support each other through life’s crises, and to cultivate ethical behavior in the community around us.

We are a member organization of the American Ethical Union, the National Ethical Service and an affiliate group of the American Humanist Association and the United Coalition of Reason.
