Drinking Skeptically – Richmond

leave a comment »

There are some great groups in Richmond – Richmond Area Free Thinkers (RAFT – an affiliate of WASH) and Richmond Reason and Naturalism Association (RRNA).  There’s also a student group on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University called the United Secular Alliance.

Most of the activities of these groups fall into the educational category.  Also, aside from the student group, the existing groups were serving the older population.  That’s great!  However, recently a group of freethinking girls (including myself) were discussing the need to supplement what’s already in our city with a social group targeted toward a younger crowd.

Thus, Drinking Skeptically-Richmond was born, and is part of the worldwide Drinking Skeptically movement.  This past Tuesday we had our second monthly event.  9 people came out – which isn’t bad considering we’ve only been around since December!  We are meeting once a month – our next event is on Wednesday, February 10th at 7PM.
