CityViews: A Lot Divides New Yorkers. Christmas Should Not.

Leader Anne Klaeysen in CityLimits on sharing the Humanistic spirit of the season in our exceptionally diverse city:

As an Ethical Humanist and member of the American Ethical Union, all cultural faiths and traditions interest me. New York City offers many opportunities for learning about them. While the majority of New Yorkers identify as Christian, there are also many practicing Jews, Hindus and Muslims. Unity is the connecting tissue for all of these faiths’ holiday celebrations. And it’s something our country is in need of now.

Leader Joe Chuman describes that while Ethical Culture has always been a numerically small movement, the values that Ethical Culture stands for and puts into practice serve as an inspirational model of what a vibrant democratic life style, both nationally and in the local arenas of life, can look like. 

Police Reform Organizing Project: 2019 is the Year to Totally Change Policing in New York City

Our partners at the Police Reform Organizing Project (PROP) have a new op-ed up at City Limits, demanding fundamental changes to the NYPD.

Leader Anne Klaeysen compelled us to take a moment for a deep collective breath to reflect upon our lives in the midst of global climate change and political upheaval. She led us in examining what grounds us and what inspires us to carry on the ethical mission to which we have committed ourselves.
