What types of events interest you, and what do you hope to get from the Atheist Community of San José (ACSJ)?
The Atheist Community of San Jose (ACSJ) is an organization for atheists and like-minded non-believers, founded to develop and support the atheist community and to provide opportunities for socializing, philanthropy, education, and friendship. We promote a positive public perception of atheists and secularists, and work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.
We typically meet every other Wednesday for a presentation by a guest speaker. Presentations by notable guest speakers and ACSJ members cover a broad spectrum of topics, some examples include atheism, religion, secularism, science, philosophy, and more. Additional events range from attending outside speaking events and debates to hiking, bowling, pub crawling, dinners, and philanthropic activities. We are a community in every sense of the word, with members having diverse talents and interests. We are also a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity organization.
"We are not creating atheists, we are creating a home for them." David Silverman President, American Atheists
