What we're about

Welcome to the Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers!

We are a group of non-believers that focuses on community involvement, social events, education and information, and activism.

Most of our meetings are held in San Joaquin County, from Lodi to Manteca -- though we occasionally join efforts with our friends in Modesto, Sacramento, and the Bay Area.

We have a number of repeating events, including "Drinking Skeptically", game night, brunch, highway cleanup, colloquium, and more.

The Stockton Area Atheists and Freethinkers has no monthly dues, and no mandatory attendance. We're just looking for like-minded people who believe in good.

Be sure to follow us on Facebook, too.
