Sunday Assembly California! - Live Long and Prosper

For our May online event, we’re teaming up with other California Sunday Assemblies!

Star Trek, one of the world’s most successful and beloved television series is uniquely concerned with ethics. Many of its episodes directly address questions of right and wrong, exploring ethical questions in a science fiction setting. In this presentation, philosopher and Ethical Society Outreach Director James Croft, Ed.D., explores how the show inspires us to live better, help often, and wonder more as we “live long and prosper."

Earth Day 2020

How are Sunday Assembly chapters recognizing Earth Day? SA Atlanta recently uploaded their Climate Change themed April 2019 Assembly. Dr. Kim Cobb, climate scientist and professor from Georgia Tech was the speaker for her third time! She discussed how Climate Change applies to so much more than global temperature: our political climate is hostile to solutions, and our social climate is fragmented and disillusioned.
