HWF Mission 

The Mission of the Humanists of West Florida is to facilitate the advancement of humanist thought and action in Pensacola and surrounding areas by interconnecting groups of humanists, atheists, agnostics and non-religious. We will strive for equal participation in government and societal life through building strategic partnerships with other humanist and freethought organizations and with our religious neighbors to advance the greater good of humanity.

How will we do it?

We are building a community of individuals, families and organizations who desire to work together to foster an ethical lifestyle through compassion and reason. Together we will create an atmosphere where non-religious people can work toward their greatest potential. We will build our network through social and support opportunities. This will be accomplished through community service projects, human rights work, promotion, awareness, events, and education.

What can we do for YOU?

  • Do you need to find “like-minded” community?
  • Do you need to find parents who are raising caring and moral children without religion?
  • Do you need to find a secular celebrant?

These are just a few of the resources you will find in the HWF community that we are building.

You are not alone!

Help us build this community by volunteering to help when and how you can, support us financially, or just let us know you’re interested. We are dedicated to listening to what humanists in West Florida want and need in order to feel free to be a part of the community.


What do we stand for?

Humanism is a rational philosophy informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion. Affirming the dignity of each human being, it supports liberty and opportunity consonant with social and planetary responsibility. Free of theism and other supernatural beliefs, humanism thus derives the goals of life from human need and interest rather than from theological or ideological abstractions, and asserts that humanity must take responsibility for its own destiny.
