What we're about

The Ethical Humanists of Atlanta meet for discussion, exploration and sharing on topics of ethics, living a life of meaning, and creating a world that is just, equitable, and sustainable. Ethical Societies, which exist in about 22 cities in the US [ http://www.aeu.org ], are humanist and non-theistic (meaning: not believing that our fate is bound to the supernatural or to a God). We can develop more meaningful and fulfilling friendships and a richer community by bringing out the best in others and thereby bringing out the best in oneself.

We meet on the fourth Sunday of each month for a fun time in a thoughtful atmosphere of conversation and sharing. Each meeting will begin with a featured topic in focus. From time to time there may be a guest speaker. We look forward to seeing and hearing from you!

Virtual Documentary Night: Amazon Empire

Atlanta

For Virtual Documentary Night we are meeting to talk about the documentary, Amazon Empire. It is available for free on this link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVVfJVj5z8s The documentary is an investigation into how CEO Jeff Bezos came to build Amazon, the company's rapid success, and its global impact. You must watch the film on your own BEFORE the event. We will be meeting over Zoom, where we will break out into small discussion groups. We will do multiple rounds of small group discussion, then close out the night with larger group discussion. I will send out the Zoom link to those listed as attending the day of the event. Please make sure and message me before the start of the event if you have not received the link. It should go to your email if you are RSVPed by the time I send it out to everyone. This event is hosted in collaboration with multiple meetup groups, including the 20s & 30s ATL Meetup, Atlanta Volunteer Meetup, the Ethical Humanists of Atlanta, Sunday Assembly Atlanta, and the Vegan Social Club. Therefore those in attendance will be from varying backgrounds and beliefs. This is in order to provide an opportunity to hear a wide range of perspectives. This event is open to all who are open to all. The one thing we ask is that people allow others to get their full thought out and that any disagreement is voiced in a civil way. Thank you and hope to see you there!
