Ethics in Action @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Led by Clergy Leader Jone Lewis
ALL ARE WELCOME!!!!
Where do you go to build your advocacy strength?  To learn some skills, have an opportunity to do even some small things to make the world better, to be with others? To plan how to get involved in actions?

Now there’s a new answer: join us every other Wednesday at the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture for an evening of action. Come anytime between 6-9 and stay for as long as you can!. We’ll have projects to do each week — write a letter or email, make a sign, call someone who represents you, etc. — and also share stories of what we’ve each done and want to do.  We might have an article to read or a short video playing to learn more about an issue.

Feel free to bring your children. We will have no childcare but kids are welcome.

Any voluntary donations are split between sustaining the costs of using the space, and contributing to a different organization each week.

Members' Meeting @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Dear Members,

We are looking forward to our next Member’s Meeting, January 29th at 1PM. We will have a slightly abbreviated platform and luncheon that morning. As many of us have expressed, at this time, we are all called to action. As members of Ethical Culture we are compelled in ways congruent with our values.  Our Society, our community, our members lead a range of programs and organize many ways each of us can make a difference.

As Grace Lee Boggs wrote…
“We can begin by doing small things at the local level, like planting community gardens or looking out for our neighbors. That is how change takes place in living systems, not from above but from within, from many local actions occurring simultaneously.”

At our Member meeting we will share about the many opportunities we all engage with and will be asked to join and support:

Lucy’s Children
Society Writers
Ethics for Children
Ethical Action
Ethical Living
Board and membership development
You will also have time to share your own ideas…And, we will also focus on an activity that includes all of us:

the capital campaign for our property stewardship and accessibility
Here we are the change we wish to see  in the world…
Rebecca Lurie Board President
Janice Novet, Board Vice-President
