Discrimination toward individuals with disabilities is both chronic and rampant throughout our society. Too often, we identify and define people by their physical or behavioral circumstances.

In our upcoming Living Ethics Roundtable, we will discuss ways in which our attitudes can be insulting, discriminatory, and exclusionary. And, we will explore ethical alternatives that can lead to greater acceptance and respect.

Once each month, on Sunday mornings, the Westchester Community for Ethical Culture offers a forum for discussion and debate on a wide variety of topics – some controversial, some vexing, some puzzling, but all requiring careful examination in an ethical context. This series is known as the Living Ethics Roundtable.

It is open to WCEC members and non-members alike; there is no fee, nor any requirement to participate other than a willingness to exchange thoughts and opinions with respect and civility.

The format for the Living Ethics Roundtable sessions is simple:

  • We begin at 10:30 a.m. with a light, mid-morning refreshment – coffee, tea, pastries.
  • At 11 a.m., we gather in the large meeting room for a brief orientation to the day’s topic, and to distribute worksheets for discussions that will follow.
  • We then divide into two or three groups – the roundtables. Each roundtable group is moderated by a designated facilitator.
  • The discussions are planned to last approximately 45 minutes. Participants then reconvene in the large meeting room to share highlights and conclusions of the roundtable discourse.
