What we're about
Who Are We?
We are freethinking. We hold that beliefs and opinions should be formed on the basis of fact-based reasoning and careful reflection rather than any unquestioning adherence to authority, tradition, or dogma.
We are a community. We seek to build a strong network of connections with other people who hold these common values. We want to cultivate a sense of family through regular meetings as well as many other events that help us share our individual interests with each other. We wish to foster a feeling of responsibility to each other and our wider community. We are here to create a positive space for ourselves and our loved ones.
