Had a hugely successful event at Reed college tonight. Leslie of the Reed Student Secular Humanists and Kurt of CFI Portland did an incredible job of publicizing the event and 160 people showed up. I was surprised at the number of recovering Catholics and Jews in the audience - or at least the number who spoke about it or mentioned it. It looks like we will get an RR group going in Portand soon. 7 people stayed after the talk to discuss how to get a group started.

That's great to hear Darrel, sorry I couldn't be there, sounds like it was a great event. Portland Freethinkers are a bit slow to motivate (not a whole lot of oppression here) but the movement is gaining momentum.

160 people! That's great!

What's an "RR" group?
