Welcome to Humanists Doing Good!
We are a nonprofit and nonreligious community of compassionate and rational people doing good for the sake of good. We are people learning, socializing and volunteering together. We are always looking for more people to join our cause and invite you to learn more about our organization and our beliefs. You just may be surprised to learn that great minds such as Albert Einstein have shared our vision.
Humanists Doing Good focuses on improving our lives by improving the lives of others.
Lower Onion Creek is located on the banks of the Colorado River in Utah. It is located near Fisher Towers that will provide excellent hiking opportunities and some of the most magnificent scenic views in the region.
The group site we have reserved should have a fire grate, picnic tables, vault toilets and shade shelter. It does not have water or electric hook-ups. We are asking that no dogs be brought on this particular trip.
If you would like to hike the Fisher Towers trail it can be up to 5.2 miles to complete or you can opt to return along the trail at any point after you've had your fill. Most trail websites seem to categorize the trail as moderate in difficulty and there are places where a fixed ladder must be climbed. There is a 650 foot elevation gain.
When: Saturday, September 30th beginning around Noon.
Where: Take I-70 West to UT-128. Take exit 214 from I-70 West. Follow UT-128 to Lower Onion Creek Campground (about 30 miles from the turnoff).

We are encouraging everyone to read a banned book and then join us for an evening of discussion and learning. We're asking that you choose any banned book you would like to read in advance and then come and talk to everyone else about the book that you chose. We'd like to know things like why you think the book was banned, what the book is about, what you liked about the book, what you disliked about the book and whether or not you'd recommend that others read it. Everyone else will do the same and we should all learn a great deal about several banned books and censorship efforts.
The American Humanist Association is encouraging other groups around the country to also participate in Banned Book week.
When: Thursday, Sept. 28th at 6:00 pm
Where: Garden Room at The Commons of Hilltop (625 27 1/2 Road - park at the rear of the building and enter through the external Garden Room entrance)

Join in as we celebrate HDG's 6th anniversary and as we also celebrate the Flying Spaghetti Monster (pasta be upon him) once again! Pirate games, colanders, spaghetti, silliness and more will abound as we all take a moment to embrace our inner kid. Real kids are also more than welcome to join in the pirate-themed antics. Speaking of which, anyone wearing pirate attire receives bonus points!
Have no idea what any of this is about? Don't worry, we'll teach you! It actually all boils down (oh, so clever!) to separation of church and state and religious education at public schools. We are also taking this opportunity to invite Colorado Mesa University students who may be interested in helping start a Secular Student Alliance on campus to participate. We're working hard on relaunching the Secular Student Alliance at CMU this year.
Despite all the zaniness, we'll try to also pack in some monthly meeting topics during this event. We'll supply the basics for a spaghetti meal so you can just show up and eat, but you're welcome to bring anything else (except alcohol) you might like to have available too! HDG volunteer shirts or pirate attire are strongly encouraged and we recommend clothing/footwear that you can comfortably move around in on the grass.
When: Sunday, September 24th at Noon
Where: Pull into Stocker Stadium's large parking lot and head toward tennis courts. Just south of tennis courts and east of Lincoln Park pool, we'll be in a covered park shelter. Phone navigators might want to try Mantlo Circle to put you near the shelter we'll be in.
