Welcome to the website of Freethinkers of the Coachella Valley. We're glad you found us!
According to Dictionary.com, A freethinker is "a person who forms opinions on the basis of reason, independent of authority or tradition, especially a person whose religious opinions differ from established belief." Our group includes atheists, freethinkers, humanists, agnostics, rationalists, scientists, and other seekers of evidence-based truth.
Meetings and membership are free of charge and open to all. We usually hold three meetings each month:
1) On a Sunday afternoon in the Community Room of the Riverside County Library in Palm Desert, our monthly General Meeting features interesting and informative programs, discussions of topics of interest to freethinkers, and informal social functions. The General Meetings do not meet from June through September.
2) On a Tuesday evening in a private room in a restaurant, at our monthly Dinner and Discussion Meeting, we discuss topics of interest over dinner, all year long.
3) On a Thursday afternoon in a member's home, our monthly Book Club Meeting discusses books of interest, all year long.
Gather with us to discuss beliefs, philosophies, and politics affecting us personally, our country, and our planet and, perhaps, make new friends along the way.
