What we're about

We invite you to join our community of secular humanists and other people who love life and reason. Here, you can exchange ideas and experiences, make new friends and contribute to positive change. We also have a vibrant community of families where parents can find support in raising children well without religion.

CFI Salem Humanists' parent organization, Center for Inquiry, is an educational nonprofit whose mission it is to foster a secular society based on science, reason, free inquiry, and humanist values. We seek to present affirmative, rational ethical alternatives to the reigning paranormal and religious systems of belief. We promote critical thinking and humanist values through education, outreach and social services.

Support our group by becoming a CFI member and CFI Portland donor. (http://www.centerforinquiry.net/support_cfi_portland/)

But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.” Alice Paul[masked], American woman suffrage leader who introduced the first equal rights amendment campaign in the US! “Susan B. Anthony formed the Equal Rights Association, refuted ideas that women were inferior to men, and fought for a woman's right to vote.” Louise Slaughter[masked] former D-NY 25th District. Current activists “We cannot ensure that women will be free of discrimination in the workplace and everywhere as long as women are not universally defended under our Constitution.

That is a risk our mothers, sisters and daughters cannot afford.” Carolyn Maloney current D-NY-12th District “I really want women to know their power, to value their experience. To understand that nothing has been more wholesome in the political process than the increased involvement of women.” Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives.
