Calling All Freethinkers in UP Diliman

If you’re a University of the Philippines Diliman student looking for fellowship with other atheists, agnostics, deists, skeptics, and freethinkers in general, you are not alone!

The first Filipino Freethinkers campus chapter is setting up in UPD and we are looking for members.

Prospective founding members need to provide the following:

  • scanned UP ID
  • UP Webmail address (e.g. [email protected])
  • Personal Email address (e.g. [email protected])

Send these to [email protected] by 11:59 PM on Friday, June 11, 2010.

We need to give these to the UP Diliman Office of Student Affairs so we can get officially registered as a university organization, which makes conducting activities much easier.

If you are unable to provide a scanned UP ID via email, you may leave a hard copy at the security guard’s desk of the National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (Albert Hall) near the College of Fine Arts.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask us at [email protected]. 🙂

You can keep updated with our activities and future meetups at our Facebook group where you can also find out more about the organization.

You can help our org get going by sharing t-shirt design ideas related to freethinking, fundraising activity ideas, ACLE ideas, ideas for guest speakers to invite, ideas for movies to screen at the 2nd Annual Filipino Freethinkers Film Festival, ideas for meet-up (General Assembly) discussion topics, and more ideas!

Help make UP Diliman a nicer place for freethinkers! 🙂
