The Chicago Ethical Humanist Circle is a democratic religious community devoted to fostering ethical ideals in everyday life.

  • We emphasize ethics and human values, and an understanding of the conditions and issues, intellectual and social, of the modern era.
  • We seek to learn together the art of living with reason, compassion, responsibility and cooperation.
  • We affirm our trust in democratic processes and the rights and worth of all individuals.
  • We utilize these processes in the management and action of the Circle.

·      To help fulfill these aims and purposes, we are a member of the American Ethical Union, through which we support the International Humanist and Ethical Union.
