Black Skeptics Los Angeles (BSLA) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing Humanist public education, media representation, and cultural resources for African American non-believers and their allies. BSLA’s programming and initiatives seek to promote greater awareness and understanding of African American secular humanist, freethought, and atheist traditions, beliefs and practices in Los Angeles communities of color and beyond. Since 2010, BSLA has hosted roundtables on secular social justice, sponsored interfaith dialogues, conducted Humanist professional development trainings, and published articles on a broad range of issues pertaining to gender equity, racial justice, economic justice, and progressive education.
We are currently soliciting matching fund contributions for our first annual "First in the Family Humanist Scholarship" which will help support under-represented first generation college students with room, board, transportation, books, and other living expenses. Your valuable tax deductible donation can be made to our Paypal address (firstname.lastname@example.org), mailing address or on our website at www.blackskepticsla.org
Mission of Black Skeptics LA
The purpose of the group is to provide a space for people of color to connect with other people of color who identify as skeptics, non believers, atheist, agnostic and other like-minded free thought individuals who are looking to become more actively involved with addressing the social controversies that we face in our communities.
We have 3 types of monthly events that center around community work, intellectual discussion and just having fun.
What do we do?
1) BSLA recently established 501(c)3 status and is looking forward to our continuous efforts in the community. Dues-paying members meet monthly to discuss upcoming events, activities, book club meetings and annual goals, as well as creating a welcoming opportunity for visitors and potential members to connect.
2) Our Educational Committee meets bi-monthly to discuss the selected books. Please feel free to join our bi-monthly Book Club to share perspectives and explore new ideas.
3) BSLA bi-monthly activities provide a great way for members and guests to connect and and have a good time. Come hangout and enjoy great company, food and drink at our social events. From bowling to movie nights, it's never a dull moment when we get together.
Come check us out and if you decide that this is a great place for you, our bi-annual membership dues are $25.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
