Our History

The Hickory Humanist Alliance (HHA) was founded as a chapter of the American Humanist Association in March 2013 by Gene Elliot, William Keener, and other residents of the Catawba Valley. HHA is a founding member of the Charlotte Coalition of Reason and an endorsing organization of the Secular Coalition of North Carolina. We sponsor one of the largest secular conferences in North Carolina and participate in several local interfaith groups and local secular activism.
