We are an active community of atheists in the greater Los Angeles area.

Our core mission involves promoting separation of government & religion, educating the public about our philosophy & practices and serving the public good in ways that are exemplary of our values. We have monthly meetings on the 4th Sunday of each month that include a variety of activities such as informative lectures, seasonal celebrations, secular movie screenings and more.

ATHEISTS UNITED UPDATES

A Life Without God: Confessions of an Atheist Black Woman 

February 24th Atheists United is hosting the supremely talented actress/composer/playwright/vocalist Sandra Booker! Sandra will perform a provocative, unfettered and piercing collection of short stories, essays and songs in collaboration with her band that explores, explains and embraces secularism from a new black feminine perspective. You won’t want to miss this performance! RSVP on MeetUp today!

Atheists United LA Hires First Executive Director Evan Clark Atheists United (AU), the oldest atheist organization in Southern California, has hired a full-time executive director. Established in 1982 to provide a values-based community for secular people, Atheists United has become the most recognized atheist groups in Southern California.  Our new Executive Director, Evan Clark, comes to us with an impressive resume as a current board chair of Secular Student Alliance.  He co-founded the Humanist Community of Ventura County and co-hosts the Humanist Experience Podcast, the official podcast of the charity Foundation Beyond Belief.  He is always available at [email protected]  Welcome aboard, Evan.

Recognizing an Extra Special Volunteer - THANK YOU, RICHARD!

Besides coordinating a monthly AU Meetup, the Santa Clarita Atheists & Freethinkers  (SCAF), Richard Wade  is currently helping SCAF petition Cal Trans Adopt-a-Highway Program so that SCAF can keep clean a portion of the I-5 freeway that runs right through Santa Clarita. Also,  under his stewardship, SCAF has begun to provide bagged lunches each month for the local homeless shelter.  Richard is also known for his “Ask Richard” advice column on the blog, The Friendly Atheist, which advises atheists and religious people who seek help in being true  in matters of belief and (especially) non-belief. His column is known for creative, constructive, compassionate, and pragmatic advice.  Richard also volunteers at Camp Quest West Northern and Southern California, performing his three science shows for children about astronomy, volcanoes, and dinosaurs. He has represented AU at the Los Angeles Interfaith Solidarity March for the last three years, and has spoken as a “guest atheist” at several churches, respectfully dispelling common misconceptions about atheists and humanizing our public image.  Thank you, Richard, for your activism, vision, and unfailing humanism. You have our eternal gratitude.

Atheism on TV!

The Freedom from Religion Foundation has a regular Sunday morning TV program, Freethought Matters on Channel 13 KCOP at 8:30 am. DirecTV and a few others list this program as “paid programming” but set your recorders anyway. FFRF is the nation’s largest association of freethinkers (atheists and agnostics), with 32,000 members nationwide. FFRF also works as a watchdog guarding the constitutional separation between religion and government.  This is an interview program and well worth 30 minutes on a Sunday morning.
