Sense in the City – A winter Wednesday Zoom discussion series with the Center City Residents Association

Wednesdays, 12 noon–1:30PM – January 19, February 9 and 23, March 9 and 23

How can citizens nurture constructive dialogue that respects everyone and helps make our society more equitable and inclusive? How can we live more meaningful, engaged, and responsible lives? Join Hugh Taft-Morales, Leader of the Philadelphia Ethical Society, for a series of guided conversations about community, difference and justice.

Hugh will offer a humanist perspective about some ethical and personal challenges we confront, followed by whole group and small group conversations. Come share what inner resources, spiritual traditions, and behavioral habits help you live more fully and fairly when navigating life in Philadelphia.

In an increasingly privatized world, how can public spaces become welcoming and inclusive oases open to people of all backgrounds and identities? Why are what sociology Prof. Elijah Anderson calls “cosmopolitan canopies” so important? How can thoughtful urban design and lighting improve our town squares? How do pedestrians, bicycles, and cars navigate our shared thoroughfares?
