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.
