We practice a healthy mix of action, education, and discourse. We demonstrate our support for a cause we believe in, enlighten the public through forums (both online and in the flesh) and lectures, and simply hang out and give voice to our opinions.
When we believe in something, we do our best to support and further it in the public sphere.
Freethought and education go hand in hand, and we dedicate plenty of our time to debunking myths, clearing up misconceptions, and refuting outright misinformation. We hold lectures and guesting at colleges, universities, and media outlets on a variety of free thought topics. We also serve as watchdogs, sounding off on public pronouncements rife with fibs and fallacies, and relaying the truth through our website and other social media.
We wouldn’t be where we are without our monthly meet-ups. Since April 2012, the Kenyan Freethinkers have been meeting every month for a few hours of friendly—and usually rowdy—discussion. Topics are varied, and often timely: the ethics behind the latest scientific discoveries, the consequences of certain current events, suggestions for improving our society on both small and grand scales, etc. Our meet-ups see an average of 30 attendees, which always include a handful of newcomers.
