​Web Page With Event Information: www.hlcia.org. Humanists of Linn County will hold it's third annual Reason on the Hill Day at the Iowa State Capitol. Other humanist oriented organizations in the state will be invited to participate. Our mission is to promote compassion, reason, and rational and critical thinking through secular education, community and political activism. We believe that science, reason, compassion, and creativity should guide public policy making. We will provide written information to legislators and other interested members of the public. In past years we have enjoyed dialogues with student groups and other visitors to the Capitol as we discuss humanism and its implications for public policy making. At Reason on the Hill Day the past two years we have given a humanist invocation in either the House or Senate. Arrangements are being made to do the same in 2019.
