These are times like no other, which have put the American moral fiber to the test in ways that are unprecedented. A pandemic, economic devastation, and protests in the streets have challenged us as never before and can lead us to either defeat or renewal. We have no choice but to move ahead. In my opening address of the season I will probe the resources in American values that can fuel a rebirth of American society. Our own Ethical Culture is a place that we can look.

Dr. Joe Chuman has been the Leader of the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County, NJ since 1974, and a part-time Leader of the New York Society for Ethical Culture since 2008. As an activist, Dr. Chuman has worked on behalf of human rights and civil liberties and in opposition to the death penalty, as well as many other progressive causes. He founded the Northern New Jersey group of Amnesty International in 1974, and currently serves as president of the Bergen County Sanctuary for Asylum Seekers, founded by the Ethical Culture Society of Bergen County. This coalition of religious and human rights organizations provides services for asylum seekers who are released from federal detention.
