Help Make the Secular Hub an Even Better Gathering Place for Atheists in Denver

We know there aren’t gathering spaces for atheists on damn near every street (like there are for some religious groups we know…) and a bunch of atheists in Denver, Colorado attempted to amend that situation earlier this year with the opening of the Secular Hub:

At the most basic level, the Secular Hub is a meeting place for secular minded groups in the Denver area. But the Secular Hub has the potential to be much more than this. Our vision for the Secular Hub is that it will be the center, or hub, of the secular community in Denver. It will be a place to see a science lecture, watch a movie with friends, participate in community service or charitable events, or just to meet up with like-minded friends. For some, it will be a haven as they try to escape from a destructive religious background. We hope that the Secular Hub will become a model for similar projects in other cities in the United States and beyond.

In order to make it work, though, they need to raise some money to cover the rent and they’ve set up an Indiegogo campaign to do it. If you live in the area or support a group that’s trying to create a safe space for non-religious people to meet, greet, and converse, please consider helping them out!

    Wow! This looks awesome! What a great idea! love the “coffe and community” on Sunday morning, but,of course, it would also be the perfect place to start a Sunday Assembly if anyone wanted to do that in Denver. My adult kids are both living close to there, I wonder if I can gently coerce them into going by sending them links to interesting talks? My daughter picked up a nasty Christian habit while in college I’m tryng to bring her back to reality. I’ll definitely send them a bit of money, more if they can “corrupt” her!

      So much for the myth that colleges are exclusively liberal, godless bastions where the professors indoctrinate their students into communism and atheism.

    Needs a fireplace and some high back leather chairs. Bottle service would be a plus.
