Much of Hutchinson's work focuses on the cultural and social history of African American secular humanist thought and its role in black liberation struggle.

Her work also challenges the social conservatism of the Black Church with respect to abortion, gay rights and women's rights.

She is also the editor of blackfemlens blog and is a frequent contributor to the LA Progressive, an online social justice magazine.

Hutchinson has challenged the lack of racial diversity and attention to institutional racism in the secular and New Atheist movements, and has also critiqued what she perceives to be their fixation on scientism at the expense of social justice.

She has championed the inclusion of anti-racism, anti-sexism, and anti-heterosexism in mainstream secular humanist and New Atheist discourse.

She has also written extensively on the role of freethought and secular humanism in black women's liberation and gender justice.  

Hutchinson subscribes to a radical Humanist vision that eschews religious and social hierarchies of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ability status because they undermine the universal human rights and self-determination of oppressed peoples.

As the founder of the Women’s Leadership Project feminist mentoring program, Hutchinson has advocated the development of secular social justice curricula that train youth to spearhead feminist anti-racist advocacy in their school communities.

A key part of the curriculum is humanist education on gender roles, gender stereotypes, misogynist racialized media depictions of women of color and the impact these factors have on the self-esteem, self-identity and life outcomes of young women of color.
