Details

The Sunday Assembly is a secular congregation that celebrates life. We are radically inclusive - everyone is welcome, regardless of their beliefs (or lack thereof), their sexual orientation, their age, gender, or politics.

This Month's Service:

Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) is a simple change that can have a big impact on our democracy. But how does it work?

Our January presentation explains RCV and how it saves money, prevents the need for runoff elections, encourages more voting, and most importantly -- doesn't "split" the vote for similar candidates.

Our speaker is Paula Lee, the Vice President of the League of Women Voters of Sacramento and Californians for Electoral Reform. Paula lives in Sacramento and is a legislative consultant/advocate for
electoral reform and higher education for drug and alcohol counselors.

She'll give us a visual demonstration of "Ranked Choice Voting" and also
provide an update on the movement for a National Popular Vote for President.

Schedule:

9:30 - Volunteer Arrival

10:30 - Doors Open

11:00 - Service Begins

12:15 - Potluck and Social Hour

What is Sunday Assembly?

Our events are 75 minutes of inspirational talks, music (mostly pop hits), poetry and art, donuts and coffee, and more, followed by an optional potluck and social hour.

Our events are free for all to attend, though donations are appreciated.

Childcare is provided for potty-trained youth ages 2 and up, though we expect older children will have a blast at the regular service.

Our Motto: To live better, help often, and wonder more.

Stay after the service and have lunch with your fellow Sunday Assembly goers. Bring a dish to share (your dish will be waiting about an hour until we dig in) or just hang out with us.
