Welcome to NYCIR, the best indie scene in Manhattan for liberty-minded New Yorkers!

Eat, drink and fellowship with NY'ers who value their unalienable right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness; and can articulate why American Exceptionalism whips Old World Socialism. Our 'indie' label suits all who seek to promote their freedom and liberty in a voice that's effective and distinct from the big franchise GOP types.

(Scroll down for link to our extensive directory of center right meetup groups)

Join our growing eclectic coalition of Constitutionalists, Free Marketeers, Free Thinkers, Classical Liberals, grassroot strategists and upstarts whose vision of Liberty and Republicanism coincides with Enlightenment Thinkers such as John Locke, Edmund Burke, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Bastiat and Alexis de Tocqueville.

Our friendly and educational Quarterly Meetups will help you rediscover the timeless principles that inspired the Declaration of Independence and Constitution; recognize what it means to be a smart advocate of 'Res Publica' and 'Res Privatae'; celebrate the triumphs of capitalism and individual enterprise; challenge the Totalitarian Left's fraudulent, regressive reasoning for a tax driven Entitlement State.

You'll have the opportunity to grow your social and professional network, and foster your activism in local and state politics. Our events are headquartered in various convenient locations in midtown.

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.
