🛑What to expect:

After the reasonable success of our 1st-Monday-(of the month)-group Zoom event, we extend this format to the 3rd-Thursday-(of the month)-group.

We’ll watch short videos about atheism, religion, science, current events, critical thinking, comedy and beyond >>> followed by moderated discussions.

What we're about:

WELCOME to www.AtheistsUnited.org's meetup - one of many opportunities to engage in mindful discussions, lectures, book clubs, educational forums mostly online, and our In-Person-Volunteer events like the monthly food distribution in person.
Links to other Atheists United meetups are listed below.

We are an ethically centered community for greater Los Angeles atheists.
Our mission is to build thriving atheist communities, empower people to express their secular values, and promote the separation of government and religion.

Meeting format:

The San Fernando Valley Atheist Meetup, a part of Atheists United, is a place for atheists to meet, have dinner with (eating on camera is ok), and talk to other atheists, skeptics and humanists.
A few agnostics and religious people sometimes show up as well and they are welcome as long as they are not there to proselytize.

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.

This is a 2 hour event, but often we go overtime when the discussion and the great atmosphere it requires; or when we can't get enough of seeing familiar faces and perhaps some new ones.

Feel free to stay as long or as short as you'd like.

Look out for topics posted in the discussion section and please place your own ideas, questions or concerns in the comments and please feel free to private message any of our co-organizers by clicking on their names.

Bring your unique point of view and add to the discussion.

Literacheer! Theme: racism

Online event

We'll go themed this time. For this session: books that address racism.

Let’s follow common sense decency in choice of books, avoid marketing pitches, and generally be nice. Focus on the "cheer" part of the event.

After you RSVP, write a comment below, mentioning the title of your book—stake your claim, so to speak—and say a little something about it.

This event is cross-posted to the Sacramento Freethinkers, Atheists, & Nonbelievers (FAN) meetup group.

Online link will be shown before the event.
