Frederick Secular Humanists (FRESH)

Frederick Secular Humanists

Frederick Secular Humanists

We’re a social and advocacy group in Frederick, Maryland that promotes fellowship and networking through social and community building activities. Our membership includes atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers, and the otherwise “unchurched,” as well as scientific skeptics, critical thinkers, and like-minded individuals as well as our friends and family.

Our primary purpose is to provide a community for secular persons in the Frederick area. We do this through regular meetings, often with speakers talking about secular and science topics, movie nights, social gatherings, community service projects, and community outreach. All events are announced on our Meet-up page.
