As many of you know I recently formed a meetup group in Los Angeles for women who don’t need religion but like hang out with friends and learn stuff and to do cool things. That meet-up group is called The Los Angeles Women’s Atheist and Agnostic Group or LAWAAG for short. LAWAAG is a great group of really wonderful people. If you are a godless gal and are in Los Angeles, you should spend some time with us. We have a lot of fun. Our next meetup, on Tuesday, November 4th, will have special guest Sikivu Hutchinson!
With LAWAAG’s first big art exhibit under our belt we are now turning our sites towards community activism and helping to make the world a tiny bit better.
LAWAAG has formed a team to do a 5k walk in Los Angeles, on Saturday November 15th sponsored by the United Way to help raise money to end homelessness. We invite you to join our team and walk with us or to help us reach our goal of raising 1,000. We are over half way to our donation goal so any help you can give will make a difference AND all donations are matched!
We are supporting United Way’s mission to end homelessness at HomeWalk on Saturday, November 15th. So join our team by registering to walk or run – or make a donation to help us reach our fundraising goal.
Every dollar you donate will be matched – dollar for dollar! You can make a general team donation, or donate to a specific team member by clicking on the team “Roster” and finding their name.
Thank you for helping us lead the way home for thousands of homeless men, women, veterans and families living on the streets of LA County. Together, we can end homelessness!
Show the world that godless people care and that we want to help build a better world free from needless suffering.
And get outside and walk!
And meet new people!
And have fun!

I should also point out that I think it is really important that atheists be active in doing good deeds for our communities. People often associate the word “atheist” with negativity and so we should try our best to support groups using the word “atheist” while also doing community service. Normally we only see church organizations reaching out to the communities in need. So if you can’t afford to support this particular fundraiser consider doing some community work with other atheist orgs that are doing more than just not believing in something.
