The following articles are suggested to read before the meeting.

Bring a take-out dinner while we socially distance, eat dinner and discuss the term.

Come chat with us under the covered area in Ben Lee Park in Rutland. The covered area is on one side of the water park. We will have a sign.

Bring a chair or blanket in case we don't get a bench.

We will be practicing social distancing as per BC Health Guidelines.

We think these can be interesting questions to discuss as being a racialized atheist/agnostic comes with questions of identity that are our own and that are imposed by others.
