They bring in nationally known speakers (Austin Dacey, Lawrence Krauss, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris), are starting up a critical thinking course, potlucks, picnics, camping events, volunteer work, humanist film festival. They participate in local atheist activism, and sponsor several atheist meetups in the Portland area. Over 150 local events per year! Come join the community - exciting things are happening!

United States Atheists
I have not attended one of their meetings yet, but there is a group called "United States Atheists" that has their headquarters on SE Foster. I am thinking about checking them out soon. They have meetings on Tuesday nights at 7:30.

Portland Area Humanism Meetup
The Humanists of Greater Portland (HGP) are reaching out! We have been meeting downtown every Sunday morning for a decade, for questions, discussion, and socializing, all anchored to an interesting program. Everyone is welcome to attend those meetings, and we get some attendees traveling 25 miles each way, but they don't work for everyone.

Secular Parents of Greater Portland
This is a meetup for parents who are raising their children without religion, who love reason as well as art, and who are looking for a community where they can find fun, support, and great company for themselves and their children.

The Beaverton Atheists Meetup Group
Meet local atheists, agnostics, secular humanists, scientific naturalists and other friends of reason for conversation and friendship! We often meet on Portland's West side but welcome people from anywhere.

The Flying Spaghetti Monster Lands for a Pint
Meet other local atheists, freethinkers and heathens. Gather to discuss beliefs and philosophies, and make new friends.
Causal, open conversation at various pubs and events!

Secular Humanists of East Portland
They meet every two weeks in SE Portland. The typical format is watching science or religion related movies at one of the members' houses with discussion afterwords. Potlucks quarterly and some outdoor activities planned this summer.

Vancouver Skeptics Meetup
The newest Atheist group near Portland. They plan to meet once per month for drinks, food, and conversation at a local restaurant.

For other groups local to Portland, you can look here for a gathering near you: "Groups pertaining to 'atheist' within 25 miles of downtown Portland."

I lived in Portland for 15 years and now am in Southern Oregon (hope that's okay). My heart is still in PDX...

I go up to Portland quite often and am glad to talk with you all.

CFI of Portland is just starting up. Lots of monthly activities. The official Kickoff will be late this summer with possibly a high profile speaker... details to come. Hope you can meet us!

Hello all!
Glad to be in contact with like minded folk in this area. I'm actually about 30 minutes north of Portland, but this is the closest group I could find.

Yay for Portland atheists! :)

USA is very cool. I would recommend checking it out to anyone interested. I go to meetings as often as I can, and am the assistant producer of our cable access show, Bunk Busters. Older crowd...but I've grown very fond of them!
