What is HAPI all about

Posted by admin | Posted on December 20, 2015
Founded
in December 25, 2013 and launched the 1st of January, 2014, Humanist
Alliance Philippines, International (HAPI) is a not for profit community
of progressive secular humanists from all over the world, united
together with common goals for the greater good of humanity, working on
an international basis but with primary focus on the Philippines as the
beneficiary of its services.

It
promotes secular humanism as a progressive philosophy suggesting that
human beings, given the right education, can be ethical and morally
upright even without divine interference.

We envision a happy world lifted from ignorance, famine, and poverty in general.
HAPI
is a democratic organization with members from different social sectors
in various countries aiming to defend each individual’s right to
personal and collective freedom, democratic rights and will work for
equality, protection of children from violence and exploitation, and
against poverty and discrimination.
It
will function as an agent of free secular education for all,
irrespective of their social status/background, through intelligent
discussions.

Paying
members will have the privilege to participate in several functions of
HAPI, including lectures and presentations, various discussions,
round table panels and debates, and a number of special occasions of the
group. (see http://www.hapihumanist.org/2016/05/hapi-membership-guidelines.html)

We
aim to demystify the old tale that morality is absent without god’s
presence and believe that we do not need a god to be good people.

HAPI
is SEC-registered and has been functioning as a legal entity in the
Philippines since January, 2015 with SEC Registration No. 00379 and TIN
008-935-196.

HAPI Statement: A time for Choosing: Salonga vs Pacquiao

There was a time under religion that I comfortably ignored the subtle and not so subtle attacks on the LGBT community.
