Our mission is simple: bring the local non-theist community together in a warm, welcoming way, where every member can speak openly and honestly about his or her lack of belief in supreme beings and deities, without being judged and without encountering hostility or condemnation as is so often the case from the rest of society.
Towards that end, we welcome all atheists, agnostics, skeptics, secular humanists, free thinkers, brights, and anyone else who embraces reason, logic, and critical thinking while rejecting the unsubstantiated supernatural claims made by the world's various religions.
We offer a free 30-day trial membership, after which members will be asked to pay a nominal annual membership fee of $10.00. We use this fee to offset our Meetup.com costs of $180/year, and to build a reserve fund to finance various initiatives.
Section 2.1 of Meetup.com's Terms of Service specifies that individuals must be at least 18 years old to use their service. Therefore, we are not allowed to accept minors into our group. However, parents are encouraged to bring their children to any of our family-friendly meetups. We look forward to welcoming you into our group and hearing about your personal experience and viewpoints!
