State Sen. Ricardo Lara is representing Long Beach, not San Diego(hes my rep). I would love if this thing went through. I like how the article talked about the 2000 supreme court decision, which allowed the BSA to discriminate, and still use public land/money/etc. Which was just a travesty.

Link below.  Finally a bill putting pressure on BSA not just for gay ban, but atheist ban.  Kudos to Sen. Ricardo Lara of San Diego on SB 323.  If anyone knows how we can support him and get more attention to this, please speak up!

In fact, if you go to Members->Advanced Search and type in "modesto" in the "for searching" field, you see 21 Atheist Nexus members from Modesto!  I'd create a meetup group and then ping those people to go out for a beer or coffee or something.

I Think - Even here in the Bay Area, where we have a large non-religious population, there isn't as much activity as you'd expect.  I guess it's easy to be complacent when we don't see the same issues as you would in the central valley.  Anyway, Chris G is right.  Start a Modesto meetup group or join the one in Los Banos.  Our group in Morgan Hill is growing steadily.  Also, do searches here on AN for members in your area and prod them to join a meetup.

 california is associated with liberals and hippies but in the central valley i hardly know any atheist.. i know bigger cities like san francisco however have people who care less about religion and of course more atheist.. modesto though seems tobe heading the opposite direction however!! cant lie. it sucks

Hi franky, what town do you live in? I've found that there are a lot more atheists in California than you might realize. Most people just keep it to themselves, but will talk about if if asked. Of course if you ask a fundamentalist religionist you might not like the results.
