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.
Voices of Reason caters to the non-religious audience--their music ranges from softer humanist themes to satire pieces that rib religion. Add to this the famous musical talents of Dan Barker of Freedom From Religion and you have music supreme. This is a one-time only event from 5 pm to 7 on Sunday June 30th. Heretic House can only hold 75 guests. So register now to save yourself a place. Register at Meetup.com https://www.meetup.com/atheistsunited/events/262296708/
AU Members now have a hangout at the CFI facility. Members (and guests) will be meeting every 2nd MONDAY from 7 to 9 pm. The next 2nd Monday is July 8th.

CFI is at 2535 Temple and parking is free. See you there!
