What we're about

You can visit our official website at blacknonbelievers.org (http://blacknonbelievers.org/).

BN is 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.

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. As a community we celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other occasions. We offer workshops and other gatherings to educate the public on the views of nonbelievers. We also facilitate a Recovering from Religion (RfR) 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.
