More Info
Hey gang! I know you’re all excited for the USFA’s activities this year! So logically it should follow that you’d be excited for an opportunity to meet your fellow freethinkers for some beers, engage in lively discussion, and hear about the constellation of fun events we have planned! Well good news! By some coincidence we have arranged for JUST SUCH AN EVENT TO TAKE PLACE!

Take this chance to get to know your fellow freethinkers, share your experiences of living free of religion, and let the exec know what you’d like to get out of the group. If you have any friends who might be interested, bring them along! We’d love to meet and hear from all of you!

Cheers, and Happy Freethinking,

USFA Exec.
