Next Meetup

People of Earth; discussion with the author
Our November SASH meeting will feature "one of our own," Carl Coon, who has led a truly fascinating life. He will talk about his recently published book: People of Earth: The First Forty. He says the book "will give you more about me and my background than you ever thought you’d want to know." Carl has led a very interesting life, and this book covers the first forty years, during which he lived in Germany, Syria, India, and Iran, plus assorted tours in the Department of State in Washington. You will find Carl's experiences very interesting. We'll also have our usual chat first - the scholarship program, December luncheon, and any other news. Please join us!

What we're about

Secular Humanists are distinguished by an emphasis on critical thinking and scientific methods of knowing, promotion of separation of church and state, and a commitment to the pursuit of humanist goals outside of religious frameworks. We are a group for non-theists, atheists, agnostics, doubters, free-thinkers, rationalists, skeptics and other like-minded individuals who are interested in exploring what it means to be "Good Without God". The main focus of the group is to build a sense of community for the "Nones" in the Shenandoah region through discussion groups, lectures, social activities and family-friendly events, as well as promoting a spirit of volunteerism and giving back to the community. There's no cost to join. Most of our events are free.

We are proud to be a Chapter of the Washington Area Secular Humanists (WASH). For more information on our parent organization visit our website at
