Our aim is to build a supportive community of people who share a vision of society based on our core values: honesty,
justice, compassion, responsibility, and courage. This community promotes these values by engaging in important social issues, seeking to both understand them and
take action on them. We are committed to working toward a more ethical society and a world that lives by humanist values.
Erin O’Brien is Chairperson, Political Science Department, University of Massachusetts at Boston.
In this talk, Erin O’Brien reflects on the challenges inherent in the sports-obsessed culture of the United States. Recently, social issues associated with sports have dominated the news: domestic violence, child abuse, concussions, bullying, and the effect of such issues on young people. This talk will explore what this means for the larger society.
