Come and check out the Humanist Community in Silicon Valley!

Check out our website - http://www.humanists.org

Our main event each week is a Sunday Forum which features a different speaker each Sunday discussing a topic of interest. A wide variety of topics are covered from week to week.

A wonderful buffet lunch immediately follows the Forum (see below).

NOTE: Approximately 40 to 60 people have been recently attending the Forum each Sunday. Most of them probably don't even know that we're now listing our meetings on Meetup.com, so the number of Meetup RSVPs for our events are normally extremely low. But don't let that fool you! As was mentioned, there are normally approximately 40 to 60 people in attendance for each Forum, no matter how many Meetup RSVPs are listed for a given Meetup event.

We also have a Family Program (for parents and their children), which meets almost every Sunday between 10:45am and 12:10pm in the building right next to where the Forum is held.  For more info, please visit:

We also have a Free Thought Discussion group (http://www.humanists.org/blog/free-thought-...) every Wednesday night at 7:30pm, and an Academic Video group (http://www.humanists.org/blog/academic-vide...) every Thursday night at 8pm.

We also have other events from time to time, e.g., monthly potlucks.  And a Fun Group (www.humanists.org/blog/fun-group) organizes a monthly "fun" activity each month.

The Humanist Community in Silicon Valley is a member chapter of the American Humanist Association.

Our Values - Freedom, fairness and compassion, health and happiness, and using science and reason to acquire and apply knowledge.

Our Vision - Living by, and acting on, these values, for the greater good, while balancing current versus future needs and desires.

Our Mission - To support the social and intellectual needs of our members and to live by and promote our values and vision

The Forum is held every Sunday at Humanist House at 1180 Coleman Ave., San Jose, CA 95110 (see https://goo.gl/maps/ZxyTz) from 11 a.m. until 12:15 p.m.

A wonderful buffet lunch is served immediately after the Forum from 12:15 until 1:30 p.m. The lunch is free for first time visitors and students. Otherwise we ask for a donation of $12. If you can't afford that, please give what you can, and please join us for lunch. We hope to see you at an upcoming Humanist Community in Silicon Valley Sunday Forum soon!

If you would like to suggest a meetup for our forum or otherwise, please send a message to the organizer (Brian).

Also, feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about the group.

Thanks,

Brian

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
