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!

ACSJ Annual Gala Holiday Banquet!

China Stix

$15.00

ACSJ Annual Gala Holiday Banquet!

Save the date: Wednesday evening December 14, 2022, during 6-9 pm. China Stix Restaurant, 2110 El Camino Real, Santa Clara, CA, 95050; restaurant phone:[masked].
Price per person: $15. When you come to the event, bring cash or bring a check made out to the Atheist Community of San Jose.
Each year the Atheist Community comes together at the China Stix Restaurant in Santa Clara for our relaxed and informal 10-course holiday banquet gathering. The food is superb, featuring pot stickers and Chinese chicken salad and honey pecan prawns and broccoli beef and Shanghai spareribs and garlic fish and orange chicken and BBQ pork fried rice and spicy green beans and combination chow mein. We also will pay a small “corkage fee” for each table, which will allow us to bring our own alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages with no arbitrary limit on the amount. If you have allergies or special food limitations, the China Stix will always accommodate your needs. Just let Judy know on Meetup well ahead of time.
Best of all, you can come together again with your old friends from the Atheist Community whom you may not have seen for a while. Also, consider bringing along a new partner or friend or date or relative or someone else who wants a glimpse of our secular community. The nonreligious portion of the U.S. population is ever-increasing; come celebrate being part of the wave of the future!
Feel free to bring a favorite bottle of wine to share or your own preferred beer or juice drink, whatever. ACSJ will provide a variety of drinks as well.
Please sign up soon so that we can give the restaurant a good estimate of the number of people to expect. We need to be sure to have the correct number of banquet tables.
In the week prior to this mid-December gathering, please be extra careful to wear your mask in public and avoid contracting COVID or flu or a cold. If you feel ill just before the banquet, please cancel your participation in consideration of your fellow atheists (do this on Meetup).
We look forward to seeing you for our joyous holiday celebration!
Please don’t forget to bring along your $15 per person. See you there!
