Welcome to BN of RVA (Richmond, VA)! We are so very happy to have you and look forward to meeting you in person. You have found a treasure in Richmond, VA of like-minded people who have traveled your journey or are on your same path. Here's a bit about our affiliation with Black Nonbelievers:
BN is a 501c3 nonprofit secular fellowship dedicated to providing an informative, caring, festive and family friendly environment. We strive to 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 seek to determine truth and morality through reason and evidence.
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.
Meetings BN members meet to discuss topics relevant to secular living as well as to socialize. As a community we celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other ocasions. We offer workshops and other gatherings to educate the public on the views of nonbelievers. We also sponsor a Recovering from Religion (RR) group to assist those in need of support while questioning their faith or dealing with the challenges of leaving religion. See our Calendar ( http://blacknonbelievers.wordpress.com/calendar/ ) for details on specific meetings and activities.
BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin, or race.
