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.

Of course: California. The ONLY open and out-spoken atheist Governor of any state was Culbert Levy Olson who served as Governor of California from 1939 to 1943. Olson refused to say "so help me God" during his oath of office or to place his hand on the Bible. Instead, with his right hand raised and his left hand conveniently tucked in his coat pocket, Olson said, "I will affirm." His grandchildren were recently interviewed by FFRF on Freethought Matters. For more information, see Atheism on TV, below.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) 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, the nation’s largest association of freethinkers and atheists, has 32,000 members nationwide. They work as a watchdog guarding the constitutional separation between religion and government. Their TV program consists of interviews and is well worth 30 minutes on a Sunday morning. Even the commercials are interesting!
