Who We Are

The Atheist Community of Austin is organized as a nonprofit educational corporation to develop and support the atheist community, to provide opportunities for socializing and friendship, to promote secular viewpoints, to encourage positive atheist culture, to defend the first amendment principle of state-church separation, to oppose discrimination against atheists and to work with other organizations in pursuit of common goals.

We define atheism as the lack of belief in gods. This definition also encompasses what most people call agnosticism.

What We Do

Our flagship activities include:

Come Meet Us

Want to meet us? The second Sunday of the month we are usually at the Austin History Center from 12:15-2:00pm for our monthly lecture. Other Sunday mornings, we meet at 11am at Cafe Express, 3418 North Lamar Blvd at 35th. [Map]. Parking is in the rear.

If you're not a morning person, come hang out with us some evening. Thursday evening is happy hour at the Dog & Duck Pub, 406 W. 17th St. near the Capitol [Google Map] starting at 7:00 pm. On Sunday afternoons, the cast and crew of the Atheist Experience meet up in a restaurant after the show and invite the audience. See the Atheist Experience website for details.
