Humanis is an anti-metahuman organization that is dedicated to limiting or removing rights from non-human metahumans. It's a well-organized and well-funded international policlub that is politically sophisticated and has 100s of chapters. The organization has a membership of 1000s and has 1000s of thousands of supporters.
Many megacorporations provide Humanis with financial support, and so do many Mafia capos, Yakuza bosses, and fixers. Religious leaders and celebrities give it public endorsements, and it has the political clout to get anti-metahuman legislation it wants passed. The policlub has many candidates in office in various countries, including the CAS and UCAS. In some parts of the CAS and UCAS, Humanis membership is considered to be a positive. The Japanese-occupied fascist anti-metahuman state of the California Protectorate controlled by General Saito and his marines was backed by Humanis (along with the Japanacorps).
They also have a limited anti-Awakened and anti-Amerind message, which usually gets drowned out in their anti-metahuman rhetoric. They are well known for wearing white robes with pointed hoods, similar to the garb of the Ku Klux Klan, sporting the Humanis logo: a round human ear (metahuman ears are more or less pointy). Their international headquarters is in Philadelphia.
The Humanis Policlub was formed in 2023 as a fledgling loosely-allied organization of anti-metahuman, anti-Amerind human supremacists, during the same year that the US Supreme Court granted equal rights to all metahuman races. By 2046, when the policlub idea spread across North America, it had a major following as one of the strongest and most well-organized anti-metahuman policlubs in existence. In 2057, the Humanis Policlub heavily backed the campaign of Kenneth Brackhaven (the nephew of Karl Brackhaven, the leader of the Seattle Humanis chapter) under the Archconservative party for UCAS president. During the Year of the Comet and the wave of SURGE, the Humanis Policlub tapped into conservative fundamentalist Christian organizations by creating the Cult of the Seventh Seal, based around the SURGE expression of Jeremiah Adams and the apocalyptic vision of Revelations.
There have been numerous allegations that the Humanis Policlub is in fact a public arm of terrorist groups such as Alamos 20,000 (probably true) and Human Nation (probably false). In response, the Humanis Policlub has "softened" its image as a pro-human group rather than a rabidly anti-metahuman hate group. Which now focuses on "Community service", as in sponsoring free clinics, schools, youth sports teams, and trid and net-cast channels. It extends its major influence through politics and lobbying, although it still makes headlines when engaging in anti-metahuman violence.
Often, Humanis makes appeals to "traditional conservative family values" and "pro-human legislation" and denounce metahumans as "mutations" or "sub-species". While there are other splinter policlubs with similar messages such as the Unity Coalition, the Humanis Policlub remains the loudest and strongest of them all, with chapterhouses all over the UCAS and CAS. It now funnels information, money, and resources to radical groups like Alamos 20,000 and acts as those groups' recruitment center.
Within the prisons of the UCAS and the CAS, Humanis forms a prison gang. It also back various anti-metahuman street gangs such as the Troll Killers and Night Hunters in the Seattle metroplex. As mentioned before it also has ties to various factions within the Yakuza and Mafia. Humanis gangs are also active in the streets (e.g. in the AGS), whose sole reason for existing is the assaulting and terrorizing of metahumans (e.g. setting buildings on fire in their communities), and inciting anti-metahuman violence.
