There are many types of local groups for people who don’t believe in a god or gods. These include those that identify as atheist, agnostic, bright, freethought, humanist, naturalist, skeptic, or use some other label. Such groups can, by their activities, be described as charitable, educational, philosophical, political, social, student, support, or more than one of these. Some are specialized, serving children, parents, people in the military, professionals, singles, students, and others. Our listing also includes congregational communities such as atheist, freethought, and humanist churches; Ethical Culture societies; Humanistic Jewish temples; and atheist-welcoming Unitarian Universalist churches.

Given this rich variety, we expect that you will be able to find one or more that are a right fit for you. And if you visit us again from time to time, you may discover new ones.
