The Honorable Order of Universal Co-Masonry (before April 2017 “The Honorable Order of American Co-Masonry”), mixed order. A 1994 split-off of Le Droit Humain and at the time called “The American Federation of Human Rights”.

After a century of ups and downs for the American Federation of Le Droit Humain, in 1994 a split became unavoidable. The largest part of the American Federation left Le Droit Humain and now remains as the largest mixed gender order in the USA. Karen Kidd wrote in On Holy Ground that at the time of the split, the American Federation of Human Rights had 18 lodges, 8 stayed in the Honorable Order, 6 split off as a new American Federation of Le Droit Humain and “the membership of four Lodges split between the two orders.” Nowadays the Honorable Order has lodges several countries: USA, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Philippines (Manilla, Cebu City), Costa Rica and Croatia. Lodges in Canada and Paraguay are in development.
The Masonic Philosophical Society is the study branch of this order. If you want to know where the lodges are located, contact the order.
