What we're about

Black Nonbelievers (BN) of New York City an affiliate of BN, and is a 501 c3 non-profit organization. Headquartered in the Atlanta area, the organization is dedicated to providing an informative, caring, festive and friendly environment. We strive to connect with other Blacks (and their allies) who are living free of religion and irrational beliefs, and might otherwise be shunned by family and friends. Instead of accepting dogma, we seek to determine truth and morality through reason and evidence.

BN welcomes all regardless of sex, sexuality, gender identity, age, national origin or race. We extend a caring embrace to all who wish to explore a meaningful and rational life.
