Sunday Platform Meeting: Courage for the Resistance...and the Relationships @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

Many of us are engaged in social justice work, or political action, seeking to change the recent direction of our country. How do we maintain hope and build up our bravery for that work? And, at the same time, how do we stay true to our Ethical Culture principles that affirm the worth of every person? Can we fight for justice without fighting each other (not a rhetorical question!)?
