AFS generally meets at noon for socializing, and then the talk starts at 1:00. Feel free to bring a dish to share. The facility is wheelchair accessible. The Atlanta Freethought Hall is a former Primitive Baptist Church, built in 1866. Atlanta Freethought Society was founded in 1985, which makes it one of Metro Atlanta's oldest secular societies. AF Hall is the meeting place for Fellowship of Reason, Freedom of Religion Foundation of Atlanta, as well as other organizations.
It's time for NaNoCon 2019!* The Nashville Nones Convention creates a uniquely needed annual gathering where non-religious people can meet up, share new ideas and good values, and build a supportive community right in the middle of the Bible Belt. NaNoCon brings together top notch secular speakers and friendly, religion-free community support at an affordable price. We aim to be an approachable experience for those who are just checking out what being good without a god is all about. Come join Mandisa Thomas, Dr. Darrel Ray of Recovering from Religion, and many, many more!
