The Central Florida Freethought Community is an official chapter of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) and an affiliate of the Florida Humanist Association and the American Humanist Association. Our partnership with FFRF allows us to work with one of the most effective and prolific state-church watchdog organizations in the country. They have an excellent online resource at http://ffrf.org/faq/state-church. Check that site if you have specific questions and be in touch with us if you have a question about a local practice regarding equal access, establishment, free speech, or freedom of expression. We are here to help.
