Next two Meetings
Tuesday 30th August, 2016 (prompt start 7:30PM) £2 entrance at the Canal House
Speaker: Joe Zamecki (Live video by Google Hangouts)
Subject: speaking from Austin, Texas, on Atheists Helping the Homeless.
Joe was born in 1968 and raised in Houston, Texas, and was sent to two private Catholic church-schools for nine years of his education. It was there that he became an Atheist. In the Sumer of 1996, Joe began doing Atheist activism and state/church separation activism with American Atheists and the Atheist Community of Austin. He was hired at AA and moved with the organization to New Jersey, and became the Office Manager of the new American Atheist Centre, there in the city of Cranford. In 2004, he left employment with AA and moved back to Texas and became more involved with the Atheist Community of Austin. Then in 2009, he helped create Atheists Helping the Homeless, a secular charity group that has grown to more than a dozen chapters across the USA. He now lives in Austin for good, and will continue to do Atheist activism, well into the future. Joe is the author of two books: “Leaving the Quiet Room: My Rise from Religious Slavery to Atheism,” and “Atheist Activist!: Tales From the Trenches of the Free Thought Movement.”

Campaigning locally for a Secular Britain.
Who we are and what we believe:
We are a group of people based in and around the Nottingham area who support the idea of a secular society, in which people of all religions, and none, should be treated equally.
We support the Charter of the National Secular Society and meet regularly to discuss secular issues; listen to guest speakers; organise campaigns, have debates and the occasional social evening.
We are not anti-religion. We oppose discrimination against religions and discrimination by religions equally but we believe that religion is a private matter for individuals and that the privileged position of religious organisations and the self-interest of religious leaders is one that should be challenged.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU
