Stay up to date with AAH DC events by joining our group on Meetup.com.

This meeting’s discussion will center on an article from the March/April 2013 edition of The Humanist entitled “Rethinking Drug Policy Assumptions” by Jefferson M. Fish. Thousands of African Americans have become casualties and collateral damage in America’s “War on Drugs” to the extent that many feel that it is instead a “War on African Americans.” Is there a rational and humane way to address the drug problem? 

About African Americans for Humanism DC

The need for critical thinking skills and a humanistic outlook in our world is great. This is no less true in the Black community than in others. Many African Americans have been engulfed by religious irrationality, conned by self-serving "faith healers", and swayed by dogmatic revisionist historians. Many others, however, have escaped the oppression of such delusions, and live happy and upstanding lives free of superstition. African Americans for Humanism (AAH) exists to bring these secular humanists together, to provide a forum for communication, and to facilitate coordinated action. In an irrational world, those who stand for reason must stand together.
