Northwest Arkansas Coalition of Reason

About Us

Are you tired of always being asked what church you go to? Unsure what to do with the uncomfortable silence that ensues? You are not alone!

The Northwest Arkansas Coalition of Reason is a collaboration of local organizations who are working together to raise the awareness of secular groups throughout our area.

The American Religious Identification Survey reports that 15% of Americans identify themselves an non-religious. This places us as one of the largest minorities in America. So, although you may feel isolated in a sea of fundamentalists, you should know that there are local groups that share your views, and are proud to do so!
