Twenty progressive community groups in North Jersey, working for fairness, equality, the natural environment, voting rights, and justice, will gather at the Society’s meetinghouse on Sept. 11 to Rise Up for Ethics! This event, with a stage indoors and display tables outdoors, is designed to inform the community and like-minded organizations about current work underway for progressive values, and to explore ways we might work together and build hope for our community’s future.
Rise Up for Ethics, which runs from 11 am to 12:30 pm, kicks off our new season at the Society. This dynamic gathering, an opportunity for learning, networking, and fellowship, will include activities for children, music, and snacks.
In addition to the Ethical Culture Society, participating organizations include Bergen County LGBTQ Alliance, Northern New Jersey Community Foundation, Heart Circle Zen, Northern NJ NOW, MLK Birthday Committee, Northern NJ Sanctuary Coalition, New Jersey Humanist Network, One Town One Vote, North Jersey Sierra Group, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey, Teaneck League of Women Voters, Teaneck International Film Festival, Teaneck Women Together, Teaneck Voices, Teaneck Peace & Justice Vigil, the Coalition to Ban Unsafe Oil Trains, YWCA Northern New Jersey, Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Palisades, and Friends of the Hackensack River Greenway Through Teaneck.
