(Want the CVAAS website?  Click here!)

The Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics (CVAAS) consists of Atheists, Skeptics, Secular Humanists, Freethinkers, Brights, non-believers and other Secular people who don't require supernatural explanations of the natural world.

We offer a fun environment where skeptical and secular people can take a break from the area's religious environment. 

We also host tabling events to raise awareness of our group and secular viewpoints, we participate in the public sector to act as a secular voice in the California Central Valley, and we work to educate and inspire the public using science and rational viewpoints.

CVAAS has hosted and supported the following events:

• Michael Shermer vs Dinesh D’Souza Debate

• Breakfast with James Randi

• Goparaju Vijayam – Exec. Director of Atheist Centre of India lecture

• Bill Maher at the Saroyan Theatre

• Atheist billboard in Fresno

• City Council prayer protest with the FFRF

• Camp Quest West

• Fresno Bee ghost hunter counterpoint interview

• Lectures at University of Phoenix

CVAAS also hosts our annual Heretic’s Barbecue in October.

CVAAS is affiliated with other secular and rational groups, including the Coalition of Reason, American Atheists, Secular Student Alliance, Secular Coalition for America, Atheist Alliance International, Orange County Freethought Alliance and the Central Valley Café Scientifique.
