Freethought Alliance is the parent organization for our science-based skeptics conference in Los Angeles called LogiCal-LA happening on Feb. 9-11, 2018 . See logicalla.com to register..
Our annual OCFA conference for 2017 morphed into two ‘symposiums’ at two different locations in Orange County on Saturday August 12, 2017 and in Los Angeles on Sunday August 13, 2017. We hope you can join us for our next conference on August of 2018.
We were very excited to have four of the most predominant atheist leaders in the country speak at both symposiums in 2017. Each speaker had a different talk each day and is available on Youtube by searching freethought alliance symposium 2017 .
Freethought Alliance (OCFA) is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization. All donations made to Freethought Alliance are tax-deductible. There is zero administration fees, and 100% of donations goes directly to conference costs.
FTA holds conferences, debates and other secular events in the southern California area. OCFA networks with 26 local secular groups in the southern California from San Diego to Fresno to Santa Barbara by sharing information about major secular events in the area. These groups are all independent and are part of OCFA only in the social networking arena. Backyard Skeptics is the only group under the Freethought Alliance non-profit 501(C)3 status.
Why was OCFA created? There are many paths to religious enlightenment – Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Islam, and many others. Some of these religions could be described as worshiping the same god, and some clearly can’t. But when it comes to the non-religious, there are also different paths people are taking with their lives: atheists, agnostics, skeptics, humanists, naturalists, and others. But are they really following a different path? Or is it really the same path with different names? Each of these groups is looking at the world through thelenses of critical thinking, rationality, and science, and excluding from their livesthe influences of mysticism, superstition, pseudo-science and all else that can not be proven by scientific inquiry.
The Freethought Alliance has been created as a way to bring all such people
together under a single umbrella to support the secular community.
Our mission: To offer a place for people of non-belief to gather, discuss cultural
and political issues and to improve the quality of life for the non-religious as well as others. And to promote dialogue between the religious and non-religious through sponsoring debates and conferences in southern California.
