What we're about

Black Nonbelievers of Columbus, OH (BN CBUS) is affiliated with Black Nonbelievers (BN), a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing an informative, caring, festive and friendly community. We connect with other Blacks (and allies) who are living free of religion and irrational beliefs who might otherwise be shunned by family and friends. Instead of accepting dogma, we determine truth and morality through reason and evidence. See http://www.blacknonbelievers.org .

Mission Statement
The mission of Black Nonbelievers is to…
• Provide secular fellowship.
• Nurture and support nonbelievers in coming out.
• Promote atheist pride.
• Organize nonbelievers for charitable causes.

BN members meet to discuss topics relevant to secular living as well as to socialize.

BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin, or race.

BN CBUS is a member of the Columbus Coalition of Reason - see http://columbuscor.org/ .
