Explore our list of actions you can take this month to make our city, state, country, and planet a better place!

The motto of The New York Society for Ethical Culture is Deed Above Creed, something we’ve worked to live up to with our rich tradition of activism since 1876.

In that spirit, in 2021 and beyond the Society will be sending out Calls to Action, featuring important causes selected by our member committees and allies, because your voice and your deeds matter!

October 18: Phone Bank for the #SkipTheStuff Bill in NYC

Environmental Stewardship Committee

Our July & August phone banks to request a public hearing for the Skip The Stuff bill 1775B were a huge success – 5 more members of City Council signed on as co-sponsors and the hearing for this bill will be scheduled in October. Let’s make sure this bill passes by working to get more co-sponsors! Join 350NYC to call members of City Council to ask for their support.

October 29: March to Remember Hurricane Sandy and Defund Climate Chaos

Environmental Stewardship Committee

On the anniversary of superstorm Sandy, world and corporate leaders will assemble in Glasgow for a conference that is the “last, best chance” to avert climate catastrophe. We’re marching to demand that they stop the money pipeline to fossil fuels. If we can stop the flow of money, we can stop the flow of oil and gas! Join us!
