Spokane Coalition of Reason


About Us

Don’t believe in God? You are not alone.

Many of your neighbors in the Inland Northwest area also live without God or religion as a part of their daily lives. CoR Spokane, the Coalition of Reason of Spokane, is a joint effort by various local groups to promote freethought, humanism, atheism, skepticism, evidence-based reasoning, et cetera. Our mutual goals are to connect like-minded individuals to form a greater rational community, to provide information about our beliefs and practices, and to make our beautiful city an even more wonderful place to live.

Though all of the member groups share common ground, each has its own particular emphasis and atmosphere. Some are activist, focusing on outreach and community service. Others are largely social, focusing on rational conversation and making new friends. All are committed to promoting wider acceptance of a more rational and contemporary view of humanity and the universe in which we live.

Participating Groups

Eastern Atheists

A handful of students at Eastern Washington University decided that it was about time to create a club to build community for the school's atheist students and make some like-minded friends. Students who consider themselves atheist, secularist, agnostic, skeptic, rationalist, freethinker, or humanist are encouraged to join.


Inland Northwest Freethought Society

The Inland Northwest Freethought Society is a coalition of non-theists, atheists, agnostics, rationalists, skeptics, secular humanists, unbelievers, and anyone else with a similar mindset. We are a regional chapter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Our group's mission: We strive to support and inform each other to become more comfortable, confident, and articulate atheists, non-theists and freethinkers. We strive to make a difference by educating ourselves, reaching out to other individuals and organizations who think like we do, and taking our message to the public in issues of intellectual and social importance.


North Idaho Secular Society

Founded in 2013, the North Idaho Secular Society (NISS) provides a welcoming atmosphere for the growing number of non-theists, agnostics, freethinkers, atheists, and humanists in the North Idaho area. NISS meets for lunch once a month on Wednesdays at various public venues and restaurants in Coeur d'Alene for open discussions, films, topical speakers, activities, socializing, and to foster community volunteer opportunities.


Spokane Secular Society

Founded in 2008, the Spokane Secular Society is made up primarily of local atheists, agnostics, freethinkers, brights, humanists, heathens, and anyone questioning faith or completely without it. We are a social and activist group that supports education, skepticism, and evidence-based reasoning.

It is the mission of the Spokane Secular Society to foster a secular community in the Inland Northwest, to educate the community at large about secularism, and to be a positive influence within that community.

We meet the third Sunday of each month in the meeting room at The Onion in downtown Spokane. Please check the calendar for more information.
