What we're about
We are a local chapter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and encourage you to join FFRF, too, at ffrf.org. Our purpose is to keep state and church separate and to educate the public about the views of non-theists. We might be fallen-away Catholics or other Christians, born atheists or agnostics, self-discovered free-thinkers, or doubting New-Agers. We welcome diversity, especially the participation of women, whose full worth and rights have been denied by religions throughout history. See our other "pages," too.
We occasionally have openings on our Board of officers, so if you have leadership experience or interests, please contact one of our Meetup organizers (left panel, select, then click "message").
Help us fight the creepy creeping theocracy in our state and across the nation. Betsy DeVos (the voucher and prayer pusher), NM Gov. Martinez, and NM Rep. Pearce are out to ruin secular public education. Others in the "Trump/Pence Church" want to spread Christian privilege while opposing evolution, good science, reproductive choice, and civil rights. Our chapter stands in opposition to these threats to our secular state and nation.
If you would like to support our local activities and share in our decisions, you can join as an official member at one of our meetings for only $10. You may also send your membership fee or a donation to FFR-ABQ, P.O. Box 20123, Albuquerque, NM, 87154.
