What we're about

Welcome to the Tulare county atheists and freethinkers! We're a new secular group located in Visalia! Our main objective is to provide a social community where non-theists can come together and mingle with other like-minded people.

We seek to promote positive atheism, develop and support the atheist community of Tulare County, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-religion (church) separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists, and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

TCAAF is open to all individuals who are free of theistic beliefs or atheist-friendly individuals whom support the aforementioned qualities on which this community was founded. By joining for free, you can meet local and like-minded atheists, agnostics, skeptics, secular humanists and freethinkers for friendship, fellowship, volunteerism, education, dialogue, fun activities, and more! We welcome and encourage any and all participation.
