What we're about

The Chicago Ethical Humanist Circle is a humanistic religious fellowship that is part of the American Ethical Union (AEU.org), and, through the AEU, the International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU.org). We focus on human lives and relationships. We explore what it means to live ethically as individuals, family members, and participants in the larger community. We have no creeds and no doctrines, but we are united by our belief in the worth and dignity of each individual and our commitment to working together to create a more just, humane, and peaceful world.

Pondering Ethical Dilemmas

Needs a location

In cooperation with the Levy Senior Center in Evanston, our Sue and Scott Walton, with Marne Glaser and Mitch Pravatiner, are leading a series of discussions on the ethical dilemmas posed by national issues and beyond, many taken from the New York Times Magazine's "Ethicist" column. Join them at 6 pm on Thursday, April 20 at 6 pm, and every 3rd Thursday of the months thereafter when through individual reflection and group discussion we will observe our thoughts and values as we determine how we would imagine handling such situations in the most ethical way. Admission is open to all but registration is requested: either sign up here, or contact Sue or Scott a [masked] or[masked]
