Ruthanne and Bart Worden will share stories and video clips from this year’s national conference for Ethical Societies that was held in Tampa, Florida.

The theme for the American Ethical Union Assembly was “Reclaiming Democracy for All” and there were many presentations and workshops, including: Keynote Presentations by Florida Congressman Carlos Guillermo Smith, the first openly gay Florida congressman, and Howard Simon, former Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. Ed Ericson, Ethical Culture Leader and author of “The Humanist Way” received the Felix Adler Lifetime Achievement Award, and three representatives from the Marjorie Stoneham Douglas School accepted the Elliott-Black Award in recognition of the school’s significant and positive impact on society through deep courage and commitment and in the fulfillment of ethical ideals.
