ACA Adopts a Street

We will participate in the Keep Austin Beautiful Adopt-A-Street program. The program allows organizations to contribute to the community by keeping litter down on Austin streets in exchange for a KAB sign, bearing the organization's name. Our sign will proudly proclaim a bit of Burnet road (between West Anderson Lane and Ohlen Road) for the Atheist Community of Austin. The sign should be up in a couple of weeks. Board Member Joe Zamecki originally set up our participation. Shelley Roberts is now coordinating the monthly effort.

Several times a year, we will have a group outing to pick up trash and help the greater community. On pick-up days, volunteers should meet at the Jack-in-the-Box on the Northeast corner of Burnet and Anderson. The effort lasts about an hour and the group goes out for a meal afterwards. Bags and gloves will be provided. Pick-up dates are:

  • Saturday, February 17, 2007 at noon
  • Saturday, March 10, 2007 at noon
  • Saturday, April 28, 2007 at noon
  • Saturday, May 19, 2007 at ll:00 am (new time)
  • Saturday, June 23, 2007 at 11:00 am
  • 3rd Saturday of the month at 11:00 am starting July 2007 unless otherwise noted below

Watch this space for further information, or contact the organizer, Shelley Roberts

Photos from past pick-up activities appear in our scrapbook pages

Atheist Community of Austin

The Atheist Community of Austin is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to promoting positive atheism and the separation of church and state. The ACA serves the local Austin community through outreach programs, providing informational resources and various volunteer activities. In addition, the ACA serves the community-at-large through free online portals including informational wikis, regular audio/video podcasts and interactive blogs.

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