Hello Houston Humanists,
My name is Debby Williams and I’m the president of Humanists of
Houston for 2017. For those of you who are new, HoH has been the local
branch of the American Humanist Association since 1978 and has grown in
recent years to one of its largest chapters. HoH was part of over 300
events in 2016 and as we continue to grow, we will continue to support the
needs of Humanists and their allies in the Houston area.
A little introduction of myself: I’m a graduate of Purdue University with
degrees in Political Science and History. For the last several years I’ve
worked for and volunteered with several non-profits. My family and I moved to Houston in 2014 and have been involved with HoH almost from the moment I got here. This is a great organization with a proud Texas history and I am very excited about the opportunity to keep moving it
As we move into 2017, Humanism and its values are facing challenges. As a 501(c)3 organization, HoH must not and will not engage in political situations which support or oppose a particular candidate. However, when moral and ethical issues are put before us, it is a Humanist core value to fight the good fight. We will vigorously defend our positions regarding issues of equal rights, racism, separation of church and state, and the promotion of science and reason through out the coming year.
HoH hosts about 30 events a month ranging from social gatherings to
intellectually challenging events. For a complete list of what is going
on, please join our Meetup group here.
We also have a Facebook group and Youtube Channel with videos of previous
HoH guest speakers.
Thanks for being a part of HoH. We look forward to seeing you at the next
