of Las Vegas and Southern Nevada
a chapter of the
American Humanist Association
is a nonprofit educational organization whose main purpose is to promote humanism as a viable alternative to supernatural and theistic belief systems. We serve as a forum for humanists, atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and other like-minded individuals in the Las Vegas area. We promote the Jeffersonian principle of separation of religion and government, the rights of nonreligious people in our society, free inquiry and thought, a naturalistic view of the universe and a reason-based, secular ethical system. Our membership is open to all like-minded people without regard to race, age, gender, sexual orientation, physical disability, political or other affiliations.

SEPTEMBER 2014 CALENDAR
HALVASON Membership Meeting
When - Sunday, SEPTEMBER 21, 2014 at 1:30 PM
Where - Springs Preserve Partnership Room (aka Banquet Room)
333 S. Valley View Blvd., Las Vegas
What - “Sunday Assembly - Good is Great“
DISCLAIMER: Our group is not an official chapter of the Sunday Assembly… yet. Some of us have expressed an interest in this type of meeting and a lot more are intrigued. Just because we are not an official chapter does not mean that we can’t have a Sunday Assembly-like event.
What exactly is the Sunday Assembly? From their web site: “The Sunday Assembly is a godless congregation that celebrates life. Our motto is: live better, help often, wonder more. After an assembly event you should be energized, vitalized, restored, repaired, refreshed and recharged. No matter what the subject of the Assembly, it will solace worries, provoke kindness and inject a touch of transcendence into the everyday.
Most of all, have fun, be nice and join in.”
Thanks to all those who attended our
"Grand Spring Celebration"
and official HALV kickoff in April! It was truly a memorable occasion. Here's a video recap of the show.
For other meetings in the Las Vegas area of interest to non-theists, please visit the Las Vegas Coalition of Reason website (www.unitedcor.org/las-vegas) which has an events calendar listing the activites of all five organized freethought groups in town.
