Are you good without a god? Hey, so are we!

We all benefit from a supportive community for friends, charity, and fostering a better understanding of secular values with our neighbors. Atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, skeptics, non-religious, lost tourists, and the generally confused are all welcome to join us!

It is often claimed that atheists are rare when in fact nearly 20% of our nation's population do not believe in a higher power. Still, atheists can feel isolated because the religious community is so organized and outspoken on issues. Building and participating in a community is the first step toward being heard.

Plus - the conversation is great!

The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is an organization of secular individuals whose goals are to:

    Build a supportive and active community.

    Promote public acceptance of nonbelievers.

    Defend science education and the separation of church and state.


We encourage everyone to suggest events and activities. In addition to various volunteer, social, and public events, our regular events are:

    Monthly Lecture Series

    1st Tuesday dinner and drinks

    New member welcome potluck

    Book Club

    Damgoode Pies Pint Night

    The "Freespeakers" Toastmasters chapter

    Human Light mid-winter celebration

    Winter Solstice holiday display at the Arkansas State Capitol

    Annual "Reason in the Rock" conference

    Public Events that we regularly support and attend

      Science Cafe

      Socrates Cafe

We are a volunteer organization and most of our events are free for the public to attend. If you want to support the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers and help us keep sponsoring these activities and events, membership is $20 a year. Our membership year is Jan 1st - Dec 31st.

New members and new ideas are always welcome.
