Sunday Platform Meetings

Ethical Education

Ethical Action

Ethical Living

The Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture seeks to be an inclusive community focused on social justice and personal growth.

Coming Soon on Sundays at 11 am

February 18th: Sunday Platform Meeting: Missing History: What You Learned That Isn’t True

Who We Are

We are an inclusive humanist community that focuses on both social justice and personal growth.  Values and action are more important to us than what we each believe or don’t believe.  Human worth and human connection are key values we hold precious.  As a community, we celebrate and mourn together, supporting and challenging each other in our humanness.  We are also part of a larger network of Ethical Societies in North America.

What We Do

We meet on Sundays to reflect on ethical living, get inspired to action, and to connect with each other person to person. We have many other opportunities to learn together, for example to understand racism, to practice compassionate communication, or to learn permaculture or mindfulness practices. We also promote action, for example marching  together for climate justice with thousands of others, cooperating with other organizations on peace or anti-racism, and aiding members in their own activism with ideas, tools, and a supportive community.

How to Join

If you think this is a community you might like to be part of, check us out on a Sunday or at other events for a few times, including in the informal conversations that are an important part of our community life. Explore a few activities that feed your human spirit.  Make a few friends!  You can subscribe to our weekly email newsletter to find out what’s happening.  Membership is open to anyone who’s visited a few times, is willing to make a commitment to helping the Society and its programs continue into the future, and is in general agreement with our principles and values.
