Secular Humanism
Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it. Christopher Hitchens
The Kansas City Metropolitan Area is home to a variety of robust organizations and individual bloggers dedicated to free thought. Additionally, groups exist in many cities outside of the metropolitan area and in the high schools, colleges and universities in the region. National groups further enhance free thought opportunities. If you are a secular humanist, atheist, agnostic, skeptic or other freethinker or just want to learn more, most of the groups will welcome you to share in their activities. Find links to them in the catagory links below:

Some of the most active free thought groups in the area around Kansas City are in the various high schools, colleges and universities. We have tried to list all of the ones in the Kansas City area; but, if you operate a school-centered group dedicated free thought issues in the area surrounding Kansas City or know of one that is not listed and you would like it added, or, if you are the organizer of one of the listed groups and you would like the description of your group changed, please send an email request to Greg with all pertinent information.
