The Secular Students Association was started in October of 2007 as a student organization that provided a safe haven for Atheists, Agnostics, Humanists, non-theists, and other freethinkers in the Elmhurst College community. While students were hesitant at first to “come out” as secular, SSA has grown from small gatherings to one of the more active student organizations on campus with about 70 members.

Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation celebrates Humanistic Judaism, honoring Jewish culture and tradition while empowering independent, human-centered choices.

The Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago is a democratic fellowship and spiritual home for those who seek a rational, compassionate philosophy of life without regard to belief or nonbelief in a supreme being.

Freedom From Religion Foundation Metropolitan Chicago Chapter

As a local arm of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the nation’s largest association of atheists and agnostics, our Chapter’s mission is to uphold the constitutional principle of the separation of state and church, as well as to educate the public in matters relating to non-theism.  We also serve as a social organization for freethinkers to engage with like-minded individuals.  The FFRFMCC serves the metropolitan Chicago area including the counties of Cook, Du Page, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will of the State of Illinois.  Chapter membership is not required in order to receive our general mailings, actively participate in advancing the Chapter’s mission, or to attend most social events.

Chicago Skeptics Meetup Group
http://meetup.com/Chicago-Skeptics/
This group is open to any and all people who enjoy applying a skeptical yet open-minded filtter to the world around us. Modern skepticism is embodied in the scientific method, which involves gathering data to formulate and test naturalistic explanations for natural phenomena. The key to skepticism is to continuously and vigorously apply the methods of science to navigate the treacherous straights between "know nothing" skepticism and "anything goes" credulity.
