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.

Climate change is happening; temperatures are rising across the globe, weather events are becoming extreme, ice caps are melting, species are migrating or becoming extinct. Scientists tell us that human activity plays a major causal role. What should we do about it? And who’s “we”?  This talk will explore the ethical responsibilities of both societies and individuals.
