The Global Secular Humanist Movement, which is coming to Maven in 2018, promotes public understanding and acknowledgment of the secular humanistic worldview, which includes economic freedom, equal individual rights and acceptance for people who hold these views. GSHM seeks solutions to human problems and answers to important human questions through critical reasoning, factual evidence and scientific methods of inquiry rather than faith and mysticism. The organization's Facebook following numbers more than 300,000.
GSHM was founded in 2010 by Faisal Saeed Al-Mutar, an Iraqi born writer, satirist and human rights activist devoted to the separation of Church and State and Mosque and State. He is a contributor to The Huffington Post and has been quoted in publications such as The New York Times, Washington Post, Columbia Journalism Review and many others.
