West LA Highway Cleanup on Sept 22

Washington/Fairfax Park and Ride

Atheists United supports the community by sponsoring the highway cleanup of the Glendale (2) freeway and now we have a new location on the 10 freeway in West Los Angeles. Please help keep Los Angeles clean and join us in the cleanup effort! NEW LOCATION: The stretch of freeway for this event is located on the 10 freeway between National and La Brea. What to wear Sturdy shoes, long pants, a hat and sunscreen. Dress in layers because it can start out cold and warm up during the morning. We'll provide bags, gloves and grabbers so you won't have to bend over to pick up trash. Lunch/Dinner or Refreshments We'll pick a place for refreshments after the cleanup How long The highway clean up will take about 2 hours plus optional get together for refreshments afterwards. How to find us We'll be at the Park and Ride lot (see map). Call Steve if you can't find the group[masked]. RSVP Please remember to change your RSVP to "no" if you can't make it. This is common courtesy. Also especially important if you are the only other volunteer signed up, because we can't do the cleanup with only one person. Other details Please post any questions you have in the comments and I'll update the event with more details.

Replacing Religious Institutions with Compelling Secular Alternatives

At USC, he leads Novus Think Tank, a home base for creative problem-solvers tackling issues like educational equity, political polarization, and access to mental health resources. He also leads the Secular Student Fellowship, a community of nonreligious students exploring how to live purposefully from a humanist perspective. In addition, he collaborates with the USC Office of Religious and Spiritual Life as the Student Coordinator of Belonging to facilitate a culture of authentic connection among the student body. Isaac will explore what we can learn from strategic communication, empathy, and behavioral insights to redesign religious systems with compelling secular alternatives. _ Musical guest this month is lead singer of the Lovepools, Anthony Shea!

Atheist TV Party

CFI

$4.00

This is TV 2B Discussed (Viewed, reviewed, and perhaps argued!)! We’re kicking off the party by watching episodes of Black Mirror, a British science fiction anthology TV series. Episodes focus on humanity’s relationship to technology and its consequences (watch out!). It’s The Twilight Zone except it’s all possible! Each episode is stand-alone and varies between 41 and 89 minutes in length. We’ve watched San Junipero and White Bear. Help us decide which episode to watch at our next meetup. If you bring a snack it’s a perk for us all. But we’d appreciate your paying for your soda. 3 p.m. on the fourth Sunday of the month in the upstairs conference room at the CFI building. Free parking in the back of the building.
