SWAC is a group that hosts informal social events designed to promote fellowship and social networking among skeptics, critical thinkers, and other like-minded individuals.

Like Skeptics in the Pub, we want to provide opportunities for skeptics and rationalists to talk and share ideas in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. And have fun while promoting skepticism, science, and rationality.

To protect privacy, this is a closed group where membership is requested and only members can see content and membership.

The group is "Without A Cause" to emphasize that informal, social nature of the group. Unlike many groups in Santa Cruz, SWAC's purpose does not include social or political activism of any sort.

We usually have one meetup a month, alternating between a Sunday brunch and a Thursday dinner gathering.

We're 157 critical thinkers
