What we're about

The Center for Inquiry Western New York (http://www.centerforinquiry.net/wny) (CFI WNY) strives to foster a secular society based on reason, science, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values. We envision a world where people value evidence and critical thinking, where superstition and prejudice subside, and where science and compassion guide public policy.

A branch of the international Center for Inquiry (http://www.centerforinquiry.net/), CFI WNY works to progress the above values in our local area through community building, educational efforts, and activism.

Our members are typically atheists, secular humanists, skeptics, agnostics, and other freethinkers. We host community lectures, coffee shop and bar discussion groups, potlucks, book club meetings, secular family events, social gatherings, and more—and we're always open to new ideas to grow our community!
