What we're about

For ex-Jehovah's Witnesses, JW's contemplating leaving the organization as well as family and friends of active JW's experiencing rejection or otherwise effected by the organization policies, procedures and history.

Friendly, supportive agenda to include ideas around cooperative social, professional and spiritual development in a world without organizational barriers.

Whether facing a life you have not been preparing for outside of the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society's proscriptions or friend/family of an ex-JW grappling with a profound redirection of life, this group is comprised of people facing these facts and friends who are empathetic. Facing re-construction of a life is a blessing and a challenge. Your time, energy and goals are now yours. The freedom is at once energizing and frightening to many. We are an diverse group of ex-JW's, disassociated, dis-fellowship and faded as well as sympathetic never-been JW's.

This is a non-judgmental forum with the sole objective of providing fellowship and moral support as well as advice where wanted.
