Downeast Humanists & Freethinkers celebrated its 10th anniversary on January 1, 2015! We meet in Ellsworth on the 1st Saturday of every month at 3:30 pm; upstairs at the Maine Grind. We are an Affiliate of the American Humanist Association.

Our mission: To provide a forum for discussing issues of common interest and concern to humanists and freethinkers, and to promote in the larger community the ideas of humanism and free thought.

Does this describe you?

Humanists believe that, using reason and compassion, we can live ethical and fulfilling lives. We don't look to supernatural explanations or divine intervention to solve the problems of humanity and the planet.

Freethinkers form opinions on the basis of evidence, as opposed to tradition, authority, or dogma.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
