Are you ready to join, explore, or get more information about the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers?
Great! The first thing you’ll want to do is connect with our various communication channels. Use these links to get in the loop:
We post announcements here, along with updates of activities and current issues of special interest to secular Arkansans. “Like” our Facebook Page and you’ll see pertinent updates in your Facebook News Feed.
When life in the Bible Belt wears you down, go here to take a sanity break. Converse, laugh, share stories, and relate to your fellow freethinkers. (If your freethinking is done in the closet, please note that although the Facebook group is closed and your posts cannot be seen by anyone who is not also a member of the group, anyone on your friends list can see that you belong to the ASF Facebook group.) We have lots of ancillary groups for freethinkers who want to get away from the noisy “big room” and make more personal connections, too. There are smaller Facebook groups for freethinking parents, vegans, libertarians, liberals, conservatives, skeptics, singles, couples, and more. There are groups focused on the book club, activism, and other ASF activities, too.
Find our calendar of events here, browse and share photos, find friends, and more. Meetup is our main event planning tool. We recommend adding a feed to your personal calendar so that when we post events on Meetup, your Outlook, Google, or iCal calendar is automatically updated. If you use Google’s calendar, for example, you can simply add a calendar with the following URL: webcal://www.meetup.com/ARfreethinkers/events/ical/Arkansas+Society+of+Freethinkers/ .
Reason in the Rock is a regional conference organized by the Arkansas Society of Freethinkers. We bring the movers and shakers of secularism and skepticism to our notch in the Bible Belt, and great things happen! Plan to attend this year’s conference on March 14-15. Updates and speaker announcements are posted on the Reason in the Rock site.
Watch videos from our monthly lecture series, see the presentations by nationally known speakers at Reason in the Rock, plus see selected videos from other sources. Subscribe for updates.
The Arkansas Society of Freethinkers is a state registered nonprofit organization that is very active in the Little Rock area. (We are in the process of applying for status as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.)
Annual membership is only $20, and $10 for anyone 18 years of age or older who has a valid student ID. The membership period runs concurrently with the calendar year. Paying anytime during a year entitles you to vote and run in the annual election in December, as well to have a voice in other necessary measures throughout the year.
Fill out our Membership Form, and either mail it, email it, or bring it along to any event along with cash or check. If you email the form (don’t forget to send a copy of your student ID if you’re paying the student rate), you can pay your membership dues with PayPal:
Forms and a donation jar will be available at most of our events.
We have a board of directors, officers, committees, and a lot of volunteer positions for anyone who wants to help with our cause. Only voting members may hold certain leadership positions.
