CFI Communities are groups of rationalists, skeptics, and humanists which sponsor local events, activism, lectures and educational programs. CFI centers draw upon volunteers and Center for Inquiry Friends and supporters who are enthusiastic about our agenda and wish to take part in our movement.
CFI Portland offers an opportunity to put your principles into practice by joining other rationalists to work for positive change in society. In addition, the Portland Community sponsors social events for freethinkers as well as intellectual programming, and assists with campus outreach.
CFI Communities provide an ethical alternative to religious and paranormal worldviews. In this time of rising religiosity, anti-intellectualism and political turmoil on ethical issues, it is critical that rationalists and freethinkers join together to protect civil liberties, defend reason, and work toward increasing scientific literacy.
