Humanists of Colorado
The Humanists of Colorado, based in Denver, Colorado, is a local chapter of the national American Humanists Association. Our local group was founded in 1980.


HOC Meetings are held on the 2nd Sunday evening of each month, starting with a Potluck Supper at 6 pm, followed by a program at 7 pm at the Secular Hub, 3100 Downing St. All HOC members are invited to the board meeting that is held at 4 pm just prior to the potluck. Please join us for a social event. You can also read more about the Humanists of Colorado, find out more about humanism, or find out how to become a member of HOC.




The Next Meeting of Humanists of Colorado

 

Sunday 14 June 2015 - HOC Monthly Meeting: Genital Cutting of Male, Female, and Intersex Children

 

Gillian Langley, RN, BSN, MSS and Scot Anderson will join us for our June monthly meeting of the HOC to present on Genital Cutting of Male, Female, and Intesex Children: A Human Rights Perspective. What is effectively genital mutilation is carried out on a regular basis based on ideas of tradition, religion, and a lot of mis-information. Most of us believe that we all have a right to autonomy of our own bodies, however society seems to act as if this autonomy belongs to us only after a certain age and in certain cases. Come and learn more about the history and implications of this practice and discuss what can be done about it.
