The Palouse Coalition of Reason is made up of atheist, freethought, and humanist groups working together in the Pullman, Washington, and Moscow, Idaho area. Our twin goals are to foster a sense of community among the like minded and raise public awareness that people who don't believe in a god or gods can be decent citizens who contribute to the larger society.
So, if you are of a secular mind, you aren't alone. Thousands of your friends and neighbors in this area think and feel as you do. And there are local groups that advance your views and welcome your participation! This website will help you find events to attend, activities in which to participate, people with whom to socialize, and groups to join.

Moreover, atheists and agnostics make up a significant portion of the population, both nationally and globally, outnumbering most religious and other minorities combined. For example, the American Religious Identification Survey reports that 12 percent of Americans are nontheistic. This places us as one of the largest minorities in America. Yet we don't enjoy the benefits of our numbers because we aren't well organized. This coalition is here to change that.
To the traditional religious community we want to say that, although we nontheists are without a belief in the supernatural, we do share the compassionate human values that most people embrace. As hard working, tax-paying, ethical citizens, we care deeply about our families, our communities, our state, our nation, and the world.
Freethought Moscow is an organization dedicated to promoting the
ideals of scientific inquiry, critical thinking, secularism, and
human-based ethics. We aim to build a community for nontheists and
educate ourselves and our communities about religion and nontheism to
foster understanding and communication with groups of both similar and
