The Los Angeles Women’s Atheist and Agnostic Group (LAWAAG) is a group for people who primarily identify as women who live a secular lifestyle or are in the process of leaving religion. LAWAAG focuses on building community and friendship among freethinking women and organizes activist and community outreach art projects. We welcome new members at our monthly meet-up and we welcome all genders to some of our events but our speakers , organizers and many events we plan are for those who primarily identify as women.
LAWAAG was formed in 2014 by multi-media artist, Amy Davis Roth with the goal of fostering a safe and supportive space for those who primarily identify as women, who are leaving faith, or who already live as part of a secular community with a goal of forging new friendships and building community among women without religion.
Our group meets in the Van Nuys are of the San Fernando Valley. Our next meetup is Saturday, February 13th at 2 pm where we will have a book club meet-up and Galentine’s Day Celebration! Our book club book for this month is WHITE NIGHTS, BLACK PARADISE by Sikivu Hutchinson.
Along with regular monthly meetups, the group also organizes art, activism and outreach projects and works towards building community and support for women without faith. We also do a yearly charity event to help our community. The last few years we have raised money for the United Way in their goal to end homelessness in Los Angeles. Our group has raised over $3,000 for this cause.
JOIN our Meetup Group to stay in touch, RSVP and to learn about new events as they happen! We have a lot of outings that don’t always get posted here, so being part of our meetup group is the best way to stay in touch and up to date!
In order to foster a safe space that acknowledges and can focus on the specific issues women encounter and deal with in a secular community, we have a strict conduct policy. We welcome all genders but we focus on issues related to women, highlight women speakers and our group is lead and organized by women. Our goal is to build community and empower women.
