What we're about

Welcome to the Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers!

We are a group of non-believers that focuses on community involvement, social events, education and information, and activism.

Most of our meetings are held in San Joaquin County, from Lodi to Manteca -- though we occasionally join efforts with our friends in Modesto, Sacramento, and the Bay Area.

We have a number of repeating events, including "Drinking Skeptically", game night, brunch, highway cleanup, colloquium, and more.

The Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers has no monthly dues, and no mandatory attendance. We're just looking for like-minded people who believe in good.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, too.

Trivia Night (Lodi)

High Water Brewing Lodi

🤔 Hold My Beer... It's Time for Trivia

On the second Wednesday of each month, we'll meet at Highwater Brewing in Lodi (near 99, south of Pine Street) for trivia, beer, and a bite to eat.

There's no set plan for teams... just look for the SAAF table and join us or form your own team. Trivia may be inside or outside depending on the weather.

🍺 Food and Drink

Highwater has 36 taps and a full kitchen with plenty of appetizers, pizza, sandwiches, salads, and desserts for everyone.

Dining Skeptically (Stockton)

Panera Bread

At Panera Bread on Pacific Ave.

This is an informal, social event that's great for newcomers and long-time members. Bring a friend and strike up a conversation about anything on your mind.

We typically select locations that have a menu with plenty of variety for everyone, including those with dietary restrictions.

📌 Important:

If you RSVP'd but cannot attend, please update your status. This will help us get a table big enough for everyone attending, but not too big.

Sci-Fi Book Club (Zoom)

Online event

📖 Our February 2023 book is "You Sexy Thing" by Cat Rambo.

Just when they thought they were out…

TwiceFar station is at the edge of the known universe, and that’s just how Niko Larson, former Admiral in the Grand Military of the Hive Mind, likes it.

Retired and finally free of the continual war of conquest, Niko and the remnants of her former unit are content to spend the rest of their days working at the restaurant they built together, The Last Chance.

But, some wars can’t ever be escaped, and unlike the Hive Mind, some enemies aren’t content to let old soldiers go. Niko and her crew are forced onto a sentient ship convinced that it is being stolen and must survive the machinations of a sadistic pirate king if they even hope to keep the dream of The Last Chance alive.

💻 Meeting via Zoom

This meeting takes place over Zoom. You'll find the link to join the meeting appears in the event details after you RSVP.

Mid-Month Coffee (Stockton)

Location visible to members

☕ Let's Chat Over Coffee!

This is for those of us lucky enough to be able to attend a morning event.

We'll meet at The Well, a coffee shop and eatery that's also part of Stockton's art scene. They're a local nonprofit that trains young adults and help them with résumé building.

Everything on their menu is homemade and their beans are freshly roasted in-house.

Look for our table sign on one of the tables and please RSVP so we can reserve a table large enough for our group.
