Omaha Coalition of Reason
Omaha Atheists is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to building a positive community for non-theists, fostering secular viewpoints, supporting charitable contributions to society, and protecting the separation of church and state.
Rationalists, Empiricists And Skeptics Of Nebraska
The mission of R.E.A.S.O.N. (Rationalists, Empiricists and Skeptics of Nebraska) is to encourage critical thinking. Members are dedicated to researching and exposing fallacies in such areas as medical quackery, pseudoscience, Biblical literalism, religious and political extremism, racism, and homophobia. We promote the use of scientific methods, evidence, logic, and reason to gain insight and understanding.
UNO Secular Student Alliance
The University of Nebraska at Omaha Secular Student Alliance is a democratic society of scholars dedicated to organizing, uniting, educating, and serving students that have an interest in a secular, non-theist philosophy while promoting the ideals of scientific and critical inquiry, democracy, secularism, and human based ethics. It shall be the purpose of this Alliance to promote and encourage excellence in personal scholarship and personal conduct while researching, discussing, and critically examining both the relation that religion has on an individual and societal level and the struggles of living without it. Tolerance of the creeds and beliefs of others is of the greatest importance and will be the guiding principle of the Secular Student Alliance. The Alliance shall continually strive to further our members and our community’s understanding of secularism through active participation in social, intellectual, and service activities.
The University of Nebraska at Omaha Council for Humanist Thought is devoted to the promotion of human values and concerns while discarding supernatural and religious systems of belief as a basis of morality and decision-making. The UNO Council for Humanist Thought does not proselytize or seek friction with organized religion, but rather provides a safe zone where practicing Humanistic thinkers can meet, and a resource for those who are dissatisfied with theology and wish to inquire about alternative non-theistic lifestyles.
Omaha Atheist and Agnostic Parenting Group
The Omaha Atheists and Agnostic Parenting Group is dedicated to providing area Atheist and Agnostic parents with secular, family focused activities.
The Nebraska Secular Home Educators (NESHE) is a group of secular families working cooperatively to provide support and resources to one another on individual homeschool adventures. NESHE offers classes and activities geared specifically to secular homeschooling families. Come join the fun!
Recovering from Religion - Omaha Chapter
Recovering From Religion is a ‘landing space’ for anyone on the path of reconsidering religion or breaking free from their faith. Making the decision to question deeply held beliefs can be a life shifting process that we all understand and appreciate. Recovering From Religion values each person’s progression out of faith as a process unique to them, and this is a safe space to ask, and possibly answer, the tough questions without criticism or blame. Anyone questioning the necessity of religion in their lives is welcome, regardless of what faith they currently adhere to. Absolutely no proselytizing or evangelizing is allowed, under ANY circumstances. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
