Watch Now: AEU Salon on Peace and Climate

By April 21, 2022 No Comments

The Russian invasion of Ukraine has elicited a broad range of responses from a broad range of perspectives.  Here are three from Ethical Culture:

  • We must respond to the human suffering caused by war with concrete actions.
  • Violence is never justified.
  • We must not be complicit in supporting the root causes of war.

  • Dr. Nori Rost, senior leader at New York Society for Ethical Culture.

This Salon was presented by the American Ethical Union Ethical Action Committee and was co-hosted by:
