If we are committed to our core values of human worth and human connection, what projects are most effective for an Ethical Society to take on? How does the Ethical movement reflect and embody racism and how do we make change? How do we nurture multicultural community, liberation and equity, in our Society, our community and in the wider world? What internal and external work can we do to make a difference?
