Gun-orrhea, America’s Most Life-Threatening Social Disease
Sunday, February 7
Dr. Anne Klaeysen, Leader
February SUNDAY PLATFORMS
New York Society For Ethical Culture, 11:00 am
2 West 64th Street
From the OK Corral in then Arizona Territory in 1881 to the Wildlife Refuge in Oregon in 2016, the United States has grappled with gun control. The majority of Americans, even gun owners and NRA members, favor background checks. Yet politicians cave into the gun industry, even blocking research funding on the health implications of gun violence, an epidemic unique to American culture. Why are Americans obsessed with guns? Is it a social disease? What makes us different from other countries?
Leader Anne Klaeysen explores these and other questions in this platform.
Built on lectures and music, Sunday Platforms are the heart of Ethical Culture. Topics range from Environment to Ethics, from Music to Theater, and can be inspiring and joyful. These events are free and open to the public. We would like to find a larger audience for these Sunday morning programs and we hope that you will share them with your colleagues, readers and friends. A second email will follow containing the rest of our monthly programs.
