SAA Presents: Stand By Me

May 20, 2018 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm America/New York Timezone
Sunday Assembly Atlanta

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members. ~ Coretta Scott King

This month, our community will focus on how and why we stand by one another.

Joining us is Brian Kammer, executive director of the Georgia Resource Center, which provides pro bono legal representation to people on death row. His work has led him to the conclusion that the capital punishment system is profoundly broken, and has exposed debilitating problems of poverty, racial discrimination and inequality in Georgia and the nation.


Alongside our main speaker, assemblies are lively events with thoughtful musings on the theme, live music from our band, members sharing their experiences, and interaction with fellow assemblers! The assembly lasts around 75 minutes.

Assemblies, and the events around them, are open to the public and free to attend!

What To Bring

After the assembly, around 7:00 PM, we have our potluck! Share your favorite dish with dozens of others and enjoy what others have made! (Tell us what you’re bringing later in the comments.) If you aren’t a cook, feel free to bring something store-bought or make a donation instead. Everyone is welcome regardless.

Accommodations and Location

We’ll be meeting at First Existentialist Congregation at 470 Candler Park Drive. Parking is plentiful along the street. The venue is wheelchair accessible via a ramp and has a bathroom in the foyer.

Children are welcome at our assemblies, but if requested with sufficient lead time we’re happy to provide childcare in the pre-school area in the bottom floor. Let us know!

What’s Sunday Assembly?

The Sunday Assembly is a life-celebrating congregation without deity, dogma, or doctrine. Our motto: Live Better, Help Often, Wonder More. Our mission: to help everyone find and fulfill their full potential. Read more info about us on our website:
