About Humanists for Peace
Humanists for Peace represents both nonreligious and religious humanists who oppose militarism and seek to reform the United State’s historically unethical foreign policy.
Taking its place among specifically religious peace organizations, Humanists for Peace draws its commitment to peace, justice, and pluralism from humanist ethics. As such, Humanists for Peace is comprised of atheist/humanist/nonreligious people who believe that peace and social justice are no less significant than the separation of church and state.
Founded by Jeff Nall, a certified Humanist minister, Humanists for Peace aims to take up the anti-war/pro-peace legacy left by a long-line of humanist peace activists including Erasmus, Condorcet, Mark Twain, Helen Keller, Albert Einstein, Freud, and Bertrand Russell.
“Once people are enlightened they will know that they have the right to dispose of their own life and wealth as they choose; they will gradually learn to regard war as the most dreadful of scourges, the most terrible of crimes” – Condorcet, 1793
