An Invitation to Reason Center
"Welcome to the Reason Center website. Our goal is to help the secular community of Sacramento connect and provide a place for meetings and activities. Here you can find resources to rent our space, read news about recent events, sign up for our newsletter, or connect with one of our partner organizations. Thank you for visiting, and we look forward to you becoming a member."
—Gary Alexander, Board President
I've been a member since the Reason Center had their grand opening. I started hanging out at the Coffee Garden and heard David Diskin talking to people about SacFan and what it was. It feels like home. Here were my people and I didn't hesitate for a second to jump right in. Since then I've been to many events and made many friends. I love having a place that is safe. Safe for people like me to share experiences with. I'm grateful to find other understanding voices who share my values and call them friends. Sunday Assembly meets at the Reason Center and it's been a delight to be at an enlightening humanistic gathering without the church panic attack.
I've been a proud member of the Sacramento Freethought / Humanist / Atheist Community for 15 years or more. Very happy to have like-minded people to hang out with, have discussions, and support one another. Let's grow this into even more!
I'm a firm believer that freethinkers need a home and a center that they can come to. There are tax-free churches on practically every other corner in every city, so there certainly should be at least one Reason Center in Sacramento.
A lot of people used to go to church...they used to have that community, and if they have given that up, lost their faith, and have become nonreligious, there needs to be a place for them for them to go, to connect and to meet other people. There needs to be a place for them to find volunteer opportunities, or to have a support network, or to maybe connect with people when times are rough. The Reason Center is that place.
