Atheists Volunteer! West LA Highway Cleanup (New location again!)

South Westgate Avenue & Missouri Avenue

AtheistsUnited.org supports the community by sponsoring the highway cleanup (through the CalTrans Adopt-A-Highway Program) at two locations - the Glendale (2) freeway and now we have a new location on the 405 freeway in West Los Angeles. Please help keep Los Angeles clean and join us in the cleanup effort! NEW LOCATION: We'll meet at Stoner Park on Westgate Ave (between Missouri Ave and Nebraska) see map. Look for a red Toyota 4Runner SUV (call Steve, the organizer, if you can't find the group[masked]). Then we'll drive/carpool to he stretch of freeway for this event on the 405 freeway between National and Santa Monica Blvd. 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. We are practicing COVID protocol so bring a mask. We also have disposable masks if you need one. 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. 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.

Online event

Daniel will resume these in-person meetings after Covid vaccinations In the interim Klaus B. will host all the online meetings. ZOOM with fellow Humanists/Agnostics/Atheists/etc., and share your experiences/ideas/concerns of living in today's world. Use the link below or go to Zoom Meeting ID: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJ0vcu6hqT8iGtU_1vKHkXFeoUYH9NDQQxqO Password: 666 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 on matters of religion or politics, don't bother showing up, you're not going to convert anyone, and you will be asked to leave. The meetup is sponsored by Atheists United (http://www.atheistsunited.org/). This meetup will also have attendees from our sister organization https://www.meetup.com/atheists-614

We’ll talk about whatever interests us, make new friends and make sense together using rational discourse and wisdom garnered from our lives. Our purpose is social, our philosophy is skeptical humanist, and our politics are progressive. What is a Humanist? Read it here: https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/humanism-capital-h/ We support the Humanist Manifesto III. Read it here: https://americanhumanist.org/what-is-humanism/manifesto3/ Humanism - Informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by compassion. Natural answers to natural questions We meet twice a month at 11:30 am on the first and third Thursdays, usually in Burbank. **** But during Covid-19 social distancing, we are meeting every Thursday on Zoom. Link is provided at end of description. You can test the Zoom link before the meeting if you like. Let me know if you have any problems. (message through Meetup) TOPICs : It's nice to have a topic or two to discuss as a starting point. Although segues and general conversation are good too! This is a social conversation. Please write your suggestions in the comments. If we don't get to it this time, I'll collect them for later. By the way, you can continue the discussion between meetings...I created a message board at https://www.meetup.com/atheistsunited/messages/boards/thread/52865300/0#[masked]
