Affiliation Renewed with Humanity+


The Mormon Transhumanist Association is pleased to announce the renewal of its affiliation with Humanity+. Formerly the World Transhumanist Association, Humanity+ and the Mormon Transhumanist Association first affiliated in 2006. Humanity+ discontinued all affiliations in April 2010, while reassessing its goals and criteria for affiliations. In the renewed affiliation, the Mormon Transhumanist Association and Humanity+ will work together to support discussion and public awareness of emerging technologies, defend the rights of individuals to adopt technologies that expand human capacities, anticipate and propose solutions for the potential consequences of emerging technologies, and actively encourage and support the development of emerging technologies judged to have sufficiently probable positive benefit. Other affiliates with Humanity+ include the Singularity Institute and the Foresight Institute, as identified in the announcement from Humanity+.
