I'd really like a place for atheists local to Portland to talk and organize. While we may not face the challenges that skeptics in some of the more religious states face, I still think that there are issues pertinent to Portland atheists that need to be addressed.
I would also very much like to have a time and a place to meet and discuss ideas or just to hang out with like-minded folk. A community based on common ideals for a common cause. Like a church, only without all of the baggage that goes along with church. A Skurch?
I have some material I have gathered on some information on some goings on that will interest atheists and skeptics local to Portland, and if there is any new local news I will post it as well.
