What we’re about

The Humanists and Freethinkers of Fairfield County (HFFC), Connecticut, seeks to promote Humanism and free thought in our community. Check out our website at
Humanism is a progressive lifestance that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead meaningful, ethical lives capable of adding to the greater good of humanity. Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that opinions should be formed on the basis of logic, reason, and empiricism, rather than authority, tradition, or dogma.
Our bywords are Reason and Compassion. We look for evidence as the basis of our beliefs about the world, and we embody compassion as our approach to others. We seek:
1. To provide a forum for mutual and public education,
2. To promote critical thinking and the separation of government and religion, and to stand up for humanist values as citizens,
3. To form a warm, welcoming and supportive community of thoughtful people.
We welcome all who wish to participate.
