Getting together for learning and discussion, supporting science, reason and critical thinking, and being able to speak freely without the pressure to comply with a traditional spiritual belief when discussing “big” issues. These are just some of the reasons our group exists.

Events have included guest speakers, informational and educational holiday celebrations for Winter Solstice and Darwin Day, and just getting together for dinner or a walk. See our Meetup page to find out what’s happening next. Our live events have moved online during the pandemic in 2020.
