We are a community dedicated to fostering ethical humanist beliefs and values and to improving the human condition through individual and collective action. We celebrate diversity and welcome newcomers of all faiths, color, sexual orientations, and nationalities - anyone who agrees with the idea that we need to help in making the world a better, more ethical place.

We have activities and events for all age groups. Among our activities are a Sunday School, a teen group, and for adults we have social gatherings, Sunday morning meetings, lectures, and discussion groups on movies, opera, and world events.

Projects of the Society include a branch of Amnesty International, the Our Times Coffeehouse, Ethical Friends of Children, whose sole purpose is to help children by providing them with needed clothing and infant furniture, and the Kenya Project - supporting the Sema Academy elementary school.

The Ethical Society Children's Ethics Program seeks to affirm the special worth of every human being and to encourage the development of those values which integrate each child into the greater human family. By identifying ethics as central to religion, children are encouraged to explore their own values and beliefs, with Ethical Culture values emphasized throughout Sunday morning lessons.

    "Hi. I attended Ethical over 50 yrs. ago on 64th St, became a member, taught Sunday School and drifted away. The core believes have sustained me and would like to meet up again with like minded folks."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
