Next Meetup

2nd Harvest Food Bank
As before, we will be sorting food at the Second Harvest's Cypress Center to prepare it for distribution. The Food Bank always has praise for the speed and efficiency of ACSJ, and our visibility to other groups at these events helps improve peoples' image of atheists. Closed-toe shoes and long pants are required (T-shirts OK, but no tank tops). Everyone must be at least 14 years old. Anyone 14-17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Second Harvest suggests that volunteers consider bringing a donation of non-perishable foods. High-protein items like peanut butter and tuna are preferable along with canned meals like stew or soup. Learn more about Second Harvest at ~Thank you for volunteering with ACSJ. Our philanthropic efforts are meant to demonstrate that atheists care about our community. All volunteers are ACSJ representatives so it is essential to show respect and consideration for others, including those who may hold beliefs different than your own.

What we're about

The Atheist Community of San Jose (ACSJ) is an organization for atheists and like-minded non-believers, founded to develop and support the atheist community and to provide opportunities for socializing, philanthropy, education, and friendship. We promote a positive public perception of atheists and secularists, and work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We typically meet every other Wednesday for a presentation by a guest speaker. Presentations by notable guest speakers and ACSJ members cover a broad spectrum of topics, some examples include atheism, religion, secularism, science, philosophy, and more. Additional events range from attending outside speaking events and debates to hiking, bowling, pub crawling, dinners, and philanthropic activities. We are a community in every sense of the word, with members having diverse talents and interests. We are also a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity organization.

"We are not creating atheists, we are creating a home for them."
David Silverman
President, American Atheists

Deconverted; Freethinkers; Agnostics; Skeptics and Humanists are welcomed!
