Pittsburgh Coalition of Reason

About Us

If you don’t believe in God, you are not alone.

If you’re a humanist, atheist, agnostic, freethinker, or skeptic—or even if you don’t know quite where you fit in—we’re here to help you get connected with a community of people like you. Welcome!

The Pittsburgh Coalition of Reason is a coalition of groups in greater Pittsburgh based on the principles of secularism, freethought, skepticism, and humanism. Our mission is:

(1) to build a supportive community for non-believers;
(2) to create positive change in the world by providing secular resources and opportunities for people to live out their Humanist values; and
(3) to raise public awareness that there are people everywhere who are good without God or religion.

At our gatherings you’ll find people who embrace and promote objectivity, reason, education, and critical thinking. Though many of us do not endorse supernatural beliefs, we absolutely do uphold the compassionate human values that people from all walks of life embrace. We are thoughtful and moral people who care deeply about our families, our communities, our country, and the world.

Our groups differ in focus and content, and they are all worth a visit. We invite you to browse our coalition calendar and find the events that interest you. We socialize, celebrate, hold lectures and discussions, volunteer, and much more. There are many ways to get involved.

A third of people under 30–and one in five adults–has no religious affiliation. We hope you’ll become part of our community and discover you are not alone. Thousands of your friends and neighbors here in Pittsburgh are just like you. And like anyone, we benefit from belonging to a community. We are happier and healthier when we stay connected, make friends, enrich ourselves, and work together to make the world a better place.

If you still have questions about Pittsburgh CoR or about non-theism in general, please visit our FAQ page.

You can contact any of our groups directly from our groups page.
