Issues and Action Discussion Circle
Dec 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The Issues and Actions Circle discusses issues of the day from the news, platform or individual interests for the purpose of expressing our thoughts and feelings, learning from others and arriving at constructive activities that might benefit the situation. Participants decide on the topic at the start of the meeting and are encouraged to present their opinions and respond to those of others. The intent is to ground our principles and values in the actual problems of our community, country, and world. The meeting begins around 1pm, Sundays, after our Sunday morning Platform, allowing some time for “lunch with the bunch”, while food can also be brought to the table. The topics at our first three meetings were sexual harassment, gentrification and possibilities for attracting Trump’s base of support.”`

Brooklyn Society Writers

Brooklyn Society Writers @ Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture

We are a group of writers of all levels and disciplines dedicated to promoting the art and craft of writing.
Join us on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
Our meetings start with a quick writing prompt to get us writing together. The remaining time is devoted to listening and reviewing drafts and pieces from fellow writers. We share work that is anywhere from rough drafts to those that are polished to perfection. On occasions, we also invite published authors to read and share their experiences with the group. To receive additional information or to receive reminder announcements, location changes or cancellations contact Kim Brandon at kimbrandon@optonline.net . Members and non-members of BSEC are welcome. We meet in the second floor library.
