Next Meetup

Chevy Chase Discussion Group
Our discussion group meetings are now on the second Friday of the month. Vicki appreciates an accurate count of people coming so she can set up her home properly for the group. So if you decide you cannot come after you have RSVPed please change it back to NO. The meeting will start at 8 pm. People may arrive as early as 7:30 so that we can actually start at 8 pm. Please bring a small contribution of food to be shared with the group. Vicki's address and phone numbers are not posted here to preserve the privacy of her home. Those details will be emailed the week of the meeting to those who are coming (see note below). Affirmative RSVPs should be posted before 8 pm the prior Thursday to allow time to notify all attendees. Note: an occasional problem with Meetup emails is that some spam filters will preclude delivery of Meetup email. If you RSVP Yes and want the email informing you of a meeting held in a private home this can be a problem. To prevent this a member can add [masked] to their personal email addresses. If a member does not receive the directions to a Friday meeting by late Tuesday evening he/she needs to directly contact to the organizer. Use the Meetup option for this. A phone call to[masked] leaving your email address is another option. Posting a comment saying that you did not receive the directions (without including your personal email address) is not helpful since if your spam filter stopped the first email it will also stop subsequent email. We want people to be comfortable in opening up their homes to other meetup members and this technical difficulty is a small price to pay to preserve the privacy of those who host events in their homes.

What we're about

Meet other local Humanists, people who believe in the basic goodness of the human spirit without supernaturalism.

The Washington Area Secular Humanists (WASH) was incorporated in 1989 as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational organization in Maryland. Our purpose is to promote scientific literacy and critical thinking, to provide a forum for humanists and others to explore humanist principles and how they relate to all aspects of human experience, and to study the significance of humanism throughout history. Secular humanists are distinguished by an emphasis on scientific methods of knowing, separation of church and state, and a commitment to the pursuit of humanist goals outside religious frameworks.

WASH is a Cooperating Local Group of the Council for Secular Humanism, an affiliate of the American Humanist Association, and an affiliate of American Atheists and an endorsing group of The Secular Coalition of America

While being a member of the WASH meetup group is free please consider joining as a member of WASH to help support our activities.
