We take atheist to mean a person who does not believe in a god or gods.
We are located in the Coachella Valley of Riverside County, California, and welcome atheists, secularists, agnostics, freethinkers, humanists, rationalists, skeptics, scientists, and other seekers of evidence-based truth to join us. Our group's name was formerly was Freethinkers of the Coachella Valley.
We encourage a positive atheist culture where we create opportunities to explore topics of interest, promote discussion, plan and execute initiatives for change, and socialize. Our forum provides a respectful place where we can learn and share ideas.
We develop and support atheistic and secular activities that include supporting separation of church and state; opposing discrimination against atheists; examining atheistic philosophies, ethics, and morals; and networking with other atheistic, secular, and agnostic organizations.
We usually hold two meetings each month:
1) Our Monthly Meeting is held on a Sunday afternoon each month from October through May in the Community Room of the Riverside County Library in Palm Desert. These meetings feature interesting and informative programs, discussions of topics of interest to atheists, and informal social functions.
2) Our Dinner and Discussion meetings are held one Tuesday evening, every month, in a private room of a restaurant. During these meetings, we discuss topics of interest over dinner.
Gather with us to discuss issues, philosophies, and politics affecting us personally, our community, our country, and our planet. Perhaps you will make new friends along the way.
