2017 at last! Join us at 11:00am on Sunday, January 8 for live music from our band, inspiring contributions from your community, and a thought-provoking talk by Danny Harris, program director from the Knight Foundation.

What will Silicon Valley leave behind? Many of us feel powerless and worried about the world we are helping to shape and the impact it will have on the next generation. Come learn about philanthropy and our community's role in leaving a legacy of empathy and beauty.

We'll sing pop songs, share news from our community, and celebrate being alive!

Coat Drive this month!
Let's explore the issue of homelessness here in Silicon Valley together and see how we can help. Our guest is Jim Gardner from Good Karma Bikes. Learn about how their Transportation for Transformation program is helping homeless and very low income workers to be mobile again, a basic liberty that each of us takes for granted.

Doors open at 10:30am for coffee and snacks, and at 11:00am on the dot we will have great talks, live music and secular celebration. Stick around afterward for food.

We will be collecting coats. Please bring any new or gently-used warm jackets or coats.

Evolve - Sept 11th assembly

From a brand-new Noah's Ark theme park in Kentucky, to state legislatures and public school classrooms, evolution is under attack across the country. Yet the science of evolution is stronger than ever, central to science education, guiding innovations in medicine and throughout the economy, and offers ever-clearer answers to central questions about who we are as a society and a species. What can we do to move society past the 90-year-old battle between evolution and creationism and learn to celebrate this grand idea?
