Please join us at our Living Ethics Roundtable, Where Is Democracy? Sunday, April 9, at 10:30 a.m.

This month’s Roundtable will address the state of our American democracy – is it thriving or declining, what does it mean to each of us, and what can we do to preserve it? We will explore the realities of a democratic system, its strengths and weaknesses.

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 require 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, and pastries.
  • At 11:00 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 40 minutes.
  • Participants then reconvene in the large meeting room to share highlights and conclusions of the roundtable discourse.
