Some are humanists, but not yet specifically connected to the AHA, like Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Ricky Gervais, George Clooney, Rachel Maddow, and others. Many are and were specifically connected to the AHA through awards and leadership roles. A selection of them includes: authors Rebecca Goldstein, Joyce Carol Oates, Gore Vidal, Salman Rushdie, and Margaret Atwood; environmentalist Lester Brown; feminist leaders, Kate Michelman, Faye Wattleton, and Gloria Steinem; economist John Kenneth Galbraith; computer engineer Steve Wozniak; actor George Takei; scientists Richard Dawkins, Donald C. Johanson, Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” and E.O. Wilson; and a score of Nobel laureates. Earlier there was Kurt Vonnegut, Betty Freidan, Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, Gene Roddenberry, Andrei Sakharov, R. Buckminster Fuller, Erich Fromm, A. Philip Randolph, Margaret Sanger, John Dewey, Bertrand Russell, and Albert Einstein.
