Our interest in the greater society is expressed through programs, such as discussion groups, debates and speakers on important issues of our day. These programs, scheduled throughout the year are all open to the public.
Like our national organization, the American Ethical Union, the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County also has a long history of social activism. Volunteering for fair housing, in homeless shelters and with peace groups are just a few of the outward expressions of our commitment to social progress. The founding of the local chapter of Amnesty International, for example, was the work of our members.
