The Humanist Association of Tulsa aspires to serve as a social network for those who will stand up for reason and tolerance. Please read our statement of principles: HERE. (They are wonderful principles.) Purposes for our existence include (1) to provide an opportunity for humanists in the Tulsa area to get together to enjoy fellowship with one another, (2) to learn together from shared educational experiences, and (3) to acquaint others with freethought and the humanist philosophy.
HAT is a member chapter of the American Humanist Association. We have approximately 22 active members and 40 members total. We range in age from early twenties to mid eighties. We usually have two main get togethers each month. The principal meeting is held on the third Saturday of each month. This meeting is held at the Genealogy Center at 2:00 PM. We conduct the business of the chapter and provide a presentation (guest speaker, video, or book review). We also get together for food and fellowship at a restaurant (location varies) on the fourth Saturday of each month at 11:30 AM. Sometimes in lieu of meeting at a restaurant, we meet at a member's home for a potluck dinner.
For those who enjoy singing, Secular Singers offers an outlet for vocal expression of humanistic values and concerns. Performances are scheduled periodically at varied venues.
All meetings are open to the public, and one need not be a HAT member to participate. To be a voting member of HAT one must pay annual dues of $6.00 (prorated for first-time new members).
