The Association for Humanist Sociology Inc. is a community of sociologists, educators, scholars, and activists who share a commitment to using sociology to promote peace, equality, and social justice.  AHS was founded in 1976 in response to a growing disenchantment with mainstream sociological organizations and a belief that sociological practice should reflect humanist values.  We strive to be an active support network for humanist sociologists.
