The Richmond Reason and Naturalism Association (RRNA) fosters in-person community for people in the Richmond, Virginia area who do not believe in the supernatural. We are a diverse group of individuals who share a naturalistic view of the world. Our group meets at least three times a month (see our Events page for details). We welcome newcomers; if you have or are considering a naturalistic perspective, we’d love to meet you.
Naturalists rely on the ever-growing body of scientific knowledge to frame their understanding of reality. We believe that everything that exists is “natural” in this sense, and do not believe in anything “supernatural.” Many atheists, humanists, skeptics, freethinkers, and Buddhists have thoroughly naturalistic perspectives.
RRNA allows those of us who are non-believers and skeptics to connect with each other. This provides us with:
- a sense of community
- a safe place to voice our views
- an opportunity for discussion and learning
- a chance to meet people who share our interests and perspectives
If you have any questions or would like more information about RRNA, please contact us.

Meet & Greet: Potluck Dinner and Introduction to RRNA
Richmond Reason and Naturalism Association extends a special invitation to people who have been curious to check us out but have not yet done so, and to people who know a little about us and would like to learn more.
This event is intended to be a comfortable and casual opportunity to spend time around the folks who are at the center of making our organization happen, as well as for newcomers to spend time getting to know each other. RRNA is in ways a small community, but we continue to try to find interesting ways to get to know others who, like us, see their worldview as framed by the ever-learning endeavor of science, and see all that exists as “natural” in that sense.
At 7:30 there will be a brief presentation and conversation about RRNA. Questions for the President and others responsible for our events are welcome.
The evening will be a potluck dinner so bring your favorite dish and enjoy an evening of good food and conversation with time for you to circulate and get to know others as you wish.
