Presented by Joe Chuman
We will hear from Dr. Joe Chuman, who addressed the unprecedented events of the past week in his January 10th platform presentation as Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture. He presented a perspective on the crisis and a look ahead for positive signs on which to place our hope. He also suggested what we can do to help ensure a better future. We will hear his presentation and discuss among ourselves.
