What we're about

The Inland Empire Atheists and Agnostics is a fun and active non-profit community for Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Humanists, Free-thinkers and others who don't believe in any gods or follow any religions.

We seek to be an active force for good in our community and the lives of non-believers. Every month, our members host fun and welcoming social events, engage in intellectual discussions, and host entertaining and educational speakers in the Riverside, Redlands, and Inland Empire area.

We welcome you to join us and become a part of our community today! To learn more about the leadership of the IEAAH, or become involved as an Organizer, please click Here (https://www.meetup.com/InlandEmpireAtheists/pages/IEAA_Leadership/).

First Wednesday LGBTQIA Secular Social Hour

Link visible for attendees

Every Wednesday at 7 pm join your LGBTQIA Humanist friends from across the country as we get together to talk about LGBT issues, our lives, and just be together on Zoom.

It's a lot of fun and a great space for LGBTQIA and gender nonbinary folks to meetup and have a place to talk about what matters to us.

All Dogs Are Atheists or Possibly Agnostics

Needs a location

It's doubtful your dog is spiritual but not religious. Certainly not any other denominations of any flavor of religion. It is possible they could think you are god-like in their own doggie way. Come to the dog park with the atheists whether you bring your dog or not. We'll watch the happy animals run around and play and we'll get in some good conversation. Wear your bug spray. Bring a drink. Come when you can, leave when you need to. There are no potties for humans. There are little doggie poop bags a plenty.

NOTE: This is a family friendly event. Dogs not required to attend.

Many of the dogs that will come do play on the large dog side of the park. There is a small dog side as well if your pup would prefer. You don't need to bring a dog to come, though. It's the outdoor camaraderie that counts.

This dog park is nice and shady on a hill with a lovely breeze. It is located roughly on the other side of Mount Rubidoux away from Riverside but NOT the dog park right at the base of Mount Rubidoux. We plan to be at the picnic table closest to the large dog entry gate unless it is already occupied. Throw a lawn chair in your trunk if more than about 8 sign up to come, which is all that will fit on the seats of the picnic tables. Plenty room for more if you have a lawn chair. Bring your dog a water bowl and water if you like. There are hoses there and usually a kiddie pool or community water bowl.

Remember that "dog" is "god" spelled backwards for a reason! The people are friendly and so are the dogs. Can't find us? Text Reb at[masked] day of if you need to.
