It's been mentioned previously, though we close another year without visible progress toward a community center to serve folks with a naturalistic outlook (by whatever labels they prefer).
Note: A Sac'to Bee article on 11/27 noted that a mere 700 citizens in the area who have Mongolian heritage (and that includes children!) have recently established a cultural center to salute the Mongol culture and its contributions.
With far, far, far more citizens in Sacramento's "community of reason" around town, one might wonder what's holding back something comparable. Something must be, but what? Is there really no need for a center to celebrate reason and science? Shouldn't there be a hub of activism and community outreach, fun and charity, secular lobbying and friendly communications, and perhaps celebrations of life events?
If you want to discuss the idea (possibilities as well as problems that prevent any movement), come to this Meetup. We'll spend an hour chatting at the Brights office where you can see the hundreds and hundreds of books and periodicals that would surely be moved to such a center, should it ever exist! We'll share ideas for action (or commiserate on the sheer impossibility of it all) and then adjourn to lunch and libations at the Limelight.
