The Northwest Freethought Coalition
The Northwest Freethought Coalition is an informal group representing various Freethought, Atheist, Agnostic, Humanist, Naturalist and other secular groups in the Pacific Northwest.
Freethought is a philosophical viewpoint that holds that beliefs should be formed on the basis of science, logic, and reason, and should not be influenced by authority, tradition, or any other dogma.
