  • Sunday Speaker: Dr Dwight Moore - Dying with Dignity...what is it really like?

    Sunday Speaker: Dwight Moore, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, Arizona End-of-Life Options https://azendoflifeoptions.org/ A story of a woman who did all she could to die with dignity in spite of amazing hurdles This talk illustrates the real life and death choice one woman made in search of a dignified death. We want this privilege in Arizona. Arizona End-of-Life Options is an all-volunteer, nonprofit coalition dedicated to the passage of a state law allowing terminally ill residents to obtain prescription medications that eliminate undue suffering at the end of life and assure a dignified, peaceful passing. We are nonpartisan and nonsectarian. Our purpose, goals, and proposed legislation are modeled after our highly respected national partners: “Death with Dignity” and “Compassion & Choices.” The end-of-life practice we endorse is called medical aid-in-dying (MAID). We are making solid progress in our efforts to get state government, the media, and the public to recognize that Arizonans should have a voice and a choice in their end-of-life care. Nine states and the District of Columbia already have MAID statutes in place, meaning this basic human right has been extended to some 70 million Americans. It also means Arizona is playing catch-up. Right now we are engaged in an aggressive grassroots campaign to communicate our positive story to all 90 members of the Arizona House and Senate. This effort, utilizing the efforts of our 350 volunteers, began in May and will continue at least through year-end. A wealth of additional information about Arizona End-of-Life Options is available from our Fact Sheet and Website.

The Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix presents its Sunday Speaker meetings twice a month on Sunday mornings. Meetings are free and open to the public.

  • Becoming Anti-racists: A Workshop for White People, Session 5 of 5

    Becoming Anti-racists: A Workshop for White People **I am so sorry for what happened during Session 4 (see comments). From now on, anyone who utters any racist and hurtful language will be expelled from the workshop immediately. - Jennifer** It is the responsibility of white people to educate ourselves and do the work needed to end systemic racism. Only white people can tear it down, and we cannot let it stand for a moment longer. We must be led by black folks and other people of color. However, we the oppressors cannot burden the very people who are being oppressed. So, we are making a start towards becoming anti-racists and effective allies by holding a 5-part workshop based on the bestselling book, So You Want to Talk About Race, by Ijeoma Oluo. Please purchase/obtain the book and read it, keeping up with the chapters to be covered in upcoming sessions. (If you haven't had the chance to keep up with the reading assignments, you are very welcome to attend but please refrain from asking questions. So much to cover and never enough time!) There will be five weekly sessions on Tuesdays, beginning July 14 and ending August 11 @ 3-4:30PM. SESSION 5: AUGUST 11 - Guest Facilitator Crystal Ringer - wife, mother, volunteer, advocate a. Chapter fourteen: What is the model minority myth? b. Chapter fifteen: But what if I hate Al Sharpton? c. Chapter sixteen: I just got called racist, what do I do now? d. Talking is great, but what else can I do? e. Video Host and Co-Facilitator: Jennifer White – Artist, Communications HSGP Co-Facilitator: Ramona Ferrara - Co-Founder White People for Black Lives-Phoenix Zoom Production: Ron Russell - Humanist Chaplain, Meditation Coach and IT geek All who are serious about doing this work are invited and welcome. This will be a safe space for people of color, with no responsibility to answer questions or contribute to the discussion unless they wish to. Anyone who utters racist/offensive/hurtful language will immediately be expelled from the workshop. Rule #1 for white people. Do not ask people of color to help you with this work. Do the research yourself. Rule #2 for white people. If you find yourself disagreeing, getting defensive, angry or confused, take the following steps: • Take a breath • Write it down • Research it.

  • Leaving Religion Discussion Group - on Google Meet

    Online event

    This discussion group will be on Google Meet. The link will be posted here 15 minutes prior to the start of the event. Many people today are experiencing either a change in their religious beliefs or have left religion altogether. This often results in a loss of close relationships. Know that you are not alone. This meet-up is designed to provide a welcoming place for each person to share feelings, thoughts, and stories, or to simply listen to others. This is not meant to be a support, counseling, or therapy group. We are meeting and talking to others who have gone through similar experiences, which can be healing or comforting. You’ll meet former believers who are now atheists, agnostics or not sure what they are. Based on the discussion from July, the topic for August’s meeting will be processing the emotions that we have about leaving religion. For many, leaving religion is a grieving process that brings up sadness, anger, or even relief. Come tell us about your journey. Limit 12 people We meet 90 minutes once a month at the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix (Google Meet for now). Humanism is a secular philosophy that encourages critical thinking and ethics. Let’s enjoy some great conversation and get to know some awesome people. Join us.
