About Our Group
East Bay Atheists meets each month in the Berkeley main library to discuss atheism and other topical events of interests to atheists. Our collective mission includes local activism when "freethinkers" rights to be free from religion are threatened, or when government promotes religion.
Who is an Atheist
An Atheist is one who has no belief in or knowledge of any god/gods. We want to live a religion-free life. We promote our US Constitutional right of freedom from religion. We do not want our taxes supporting religion or faith-based organizations. We invite fellow Atheists to join us in peacefully promoting our principles and protecting our rights.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." -- First Amendment, The Constitution of the United States.
Other Local Events
We strongly suggest that you check out and join our Freethinker Meetup group. With over 1500 members, this is where most of the local groups post their meetings. It also provides a venue for others to post events of interest to our community.
And don't forget about Facebook group.
