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]. Limited Space We only have enough equipment for a few people so we have to limit participation. Please remember to change your RSVP to "no" if you can't make it so anyone on the waiting list will be able to join us. 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.
Join Atheists, Skeptics, Humanists, and Critical Thinkers for food and lively conversation. We would love to have you join us for food and conversation. We meet on the 1st Saturday at various locations! This month we will be meeting at Mimi's Cafe. Locations for upcoming meet-ups will be announced.
Meet with fellow Humanists/Agnostics/Atheists/etc., have dinner, and share your experiences/ideas/concerns of living in today's world. Food/Drink are optional, but we always like to patronize our host, since they don't charge us for the space. And it’s great "comfort-food" with a full bar, and several on-tap selections. Please bring a favorite or "hot" topic to discuss, or any research you have been doing. The Moderator presents a couple of topics throughout the meeting, but the spin-off discussions are always informative and robust! Feel free to post your ideas/questions/concerns in the chat below. We're always open to new members and persons of widely varying viewpoints. But we mandate courtesy and respect to fellow attendees, and no proselytizing. Foremost, this is a social gathering, and support group for like-minded persons, not a debate club. If you're coming just to argue, don't bother, you're not going to convert anyone. The meetup is sponsored by Atheists United (http://www.atheistsunited.org/). First-time attendees are eligible to receive a free 3 month subscription to the Atheists United newsletter! This meetup will also have attendees from our sister organization https://www.meetup.com/atheists-614
