Humanist Association of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada

Who We Are

HALV is a nonprofit educational organization whose main purpose is to promote humanism as a viable alternative to supernatural and theistic belief systems. We serve as a forum for humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and other like-minded individuals in the Las Vegas area. We promote the Jeffersonian principle of separation of religion and government, the rights of nonreligious people in our society, free inquiry and thought, a naturalistic view of the universe and a reason-based, secular ethical system. Our membership is open to all like-minded people without regard to race, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, political or other affiliations.

HALV is a chapter of the American Humanist Association .
