Houston Black Non-Believers
Houston Black Non-Believers (HBN), a non-profit corporation (501(c)(3) status pending) founded in October 2013, is dedicated to the challenge of forging a different perspective in our community while providing a congenial environment where individuals with a secular worldview can thrive. Our focus is the black community. A secular voice that is heard in the black community is very unique considering the overwhelming display of religious beliefs. Today, black people in the United States that choose not to depend on or support the dogma of a religion are often castaways or experience loneliness. HBN will be that place of solace and developing new relationships.
“We don’t have all the answers, but we’re not afraid to ask questions.”
MISSION STATEMENT: This secular group shall exist for the affirmation and promotion of moral and ethical character in the black community.
We will prove, especially in the black community, that we can save ourselves.
- To promote the betterment of humanity.
- To provide a viable alternative to religious institutions, we will create and foster a close-knit community of non-believers.
- To put a positive face on non-theism through education, public outreach, and community service.
- To ensure a supportive community to those questioning and/or transforming from religion.
