United States Atheists promotes atheism as both a fact about the world and as a way of life. We operated the first Atheist Community Center to be established in the United States. Our mission includes ministering to the needs of non-theists, promoting atheism as a positive belief system, supporting the separation of state and church, defending the civil rights of atheists, and combating the authoritarian agenda of the religious right and other extremists. We provide a safe, supportive place for atheists to share their views with like-minded folks. If you live in Portland, Oregon or plan to visit, join us for our meetings every Tuesday night.

United States Atheists is run entirely by volunteers.
