Activism, Outreach, and Education

Humanist activism focuses on the development of actions that facilitate

  1. advocacy for humanist principles
  2. protection for humanist rights, and
  3. increased awareness and understanding of humanism by the general public.

But why these goals, and not others? And why devote effort to achieving them? In preparation for material covered in later modules of this course, the rest of this lesson will answer these questions in general terms.
