What we're about

Meet local skeptics, freethinkers, atheists, agnostics, scientific naturalists and other friends of reason for conversation and friendship! Our meetings will be in Vancouver, Washington but welcome people from anywhere.

We have one meeting per month.Please email me if you'd like to become an assistant organizer and live in the Vancouver area.

This group is the North Outreach of the Center for Inquiry Portland, an educational nonprofit organization that seeks to advance reason, science, and freedom of inquiry in all areas of human endeavor, and to present affirmative, rational ethical alternatives to the reigning paranormal and religious systems of belief.

Join us on Meetup at https://www.meetup.com/cfi-portland and on the web at http://centerforinquiry.net/portland

CFI Halloween Party & Mask Contest

Lucky Labrador Beer Hall

Just because we're skeptics doesn't mean we don’t know how have a good time celebrating pagan rites. Bring your funniest, scariest, weirdest face mask and compete for prizes.

DOOR PRIZE FOR DUES-PAYING CFI MEMBERS -- If you're a current, dues-paying member of CFI, take your pick out of our CFI t-shirt stockpile while supplies last.

FREE PIZZA WHILE IT LASTS FOR DUES-PAYING CFI MEMBERS -- We're anxious to see ya so we're not afraid to bribe you.

MASK CONTEST is open to everyone.
