About Us

PH was formed to give like minded humanists, free-thinkers, atheists, agnostics, skeptics, and secular people a place to feel less isolated and build a community not based on theistic doctrine. We’re here to connect, educate, volunteer, promote the separation of church and state, and be ourselves. We serve the upstate South Carolina area, most of our members and meetings are in the Greenville, Spartanburg, or Anderson areas.  Check out our Calendar or Meetup Page to find out where to catch up with us !!

Piedmont Humanists grew out of several smaller and older groups, but has only officially existed since November 2011.

We are a South Carolina non-profit corporation: Upstate South Carolina Secular Humanists (USCSH), dba Piedmont Humanists
