We are inspired by a vision of a vibrant Bay Area atheist and freethinker movement that is tied into the national movement. As the metropolitan center of the Bay Area, it is vital that San Francisco take a leadership role in working with the other local atheist and freethought groups.
We strongly advocate activism, including rallies and speaking at government meetings on issues of vital importance to atheists and freethinkers. We certainly welcome atheists and freethinkers who want to socialize at picnics and have discussions at educational meetings without getting more active. We will continue to organize such events, as we have done in the past, but are convinced that we must go beyond meetings and dinners to activism in order to effect change.
