The Moral of Our Stories: Personal Ethics in the Work of Social Change
November 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Three local community activists—Phyllis Boyd, Elizabeth Wallin, and Andy Beck—talk with community member Martin Coleman about maintaining a moral vision when working for social change challenges the ideals motivating that very work.
When our ideals lead us to unlikely alliances, opportunities laden with unintended consequences, or interpersonal conflict, how does our understanding of our moral vision change? This event considers the dynamic and precarious interaction between individual integrity and working for social change. Assuming that individual ethical growth and social justice work cannot be separated, panelists – and the audience – will be invited to reflect on how their personal integrity has been challenged by their social responsibilities. This event suggests that understanding what changes in ourselves when we work for social change can make our moral vision more inclusive and beneficial change more likely.
