The Dallas–Fort Worth Coalition of Reason is a group of local organizations joined together to increase the growth, visibility and acceptance of all atheists throughout the Metroplex. While all of these organizations share common ground, each has its own particular emphasis and atmosphere. Some are focused on scientific inquiry and education; others are focused on ethics and community. Still others seek to create environments of rationality where people can socialize in climates of tolerance and support. All organizations are committed to promoting wider acceptance of a more rational and realistic view of the universe and the humans who live in it.
The DFWCoR seeks to inform local atheists that there are groups to join, activities in which to participate, events to attend and like-minded people with which to socialize. In short, we want to help those who have grown beyond religious belief to find their philosophical home. In addition, we seek to increase our influence in the marketplace of ideas and to take our rightful place at the table of acceptance and equal rights. Atheists who are not ready, or who are unable, to "come out" can take comfort in knowing that they are not the only ones who accept the reality of a 100% natural world.
For the religious community, we want them to realize that, although atheists reject the supernatural, we share with them compassionate human values that most religious believers embrace. In most ways, we are like them, hard working, tax paying, moral citizens who care deeply about our families, our communities, our state and our country.
The DFWCoR is affiliated with the United Coalition of Reason.
