The Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics (CVAAS) consists of Atheists, Skeptics, Secular Humanists, Freethinkers, Brights, non-believers and other Secular people who don't require supernatural explanations of the natural world.
We offer a fun environment where skeptical and secular people can take a break from the area's religious environment.
We also host tabling events to raise awareness of our group and secular viewpoints, we participate in the public sector to act as a secular voice in the California Central Valley, and we work to educate and inspire the public using science and rational viewpoints.
