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.

What - The DEBATE: “PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS”
In an effort to raise as much money as we can for the fight against leukemia, we have decided to have some fun doing something that we love to do: ARGUE. Bring some cash and your best arguments for and against: the free market, the government, taxation, social programs, corporations, stimulus programs...or whatever floats your boat! Our goal is to support a good cause while enjoying a spirited discussion and proving that: a) we are civilized enough to listen to each other with an open mind and b) accept our differences of opinion without losing sight of that which brings us together.
$5 is the fee for attending the event, which will include ONE TOKEN and LUNCH
$2 per additional token
$10 to change the subject; you can stop the current discussion and choose a new topic
