Bart Worden: Waging Peace-Hybrid Meeting

It seems many people and many nations are prepared to use violent means to address conflicts. But how might these same peoples and nations prepare for peace? Although violent measures are frequently deployed to defend against attacks or used in response to threats, the track record for violence as a means to attain peace is abysmal. Unfortunately, non-violent resistance and mutually attained accommodations have not been pursued with the energy and tenacity required to make them mainstays of engagement, and so the casualties of violence continue to mount.

In this talk Bart Worden,  clergy leader for the Westchester Community for Ethical Culture, will examine a few avenues for developing the commitments and skills needed to pursue pathways to peaceful coexistence. If peace doesn’t begin with you, where will it ever begin?

Bart Worden has been the clergy leader for the Westchester Community for Ethical Culture since 1998 and was the Executive Director of the American Ethical Union, the national federation of Ethical Culture and Ethical Humanist Societies, before retiring from that role at the end of 2022.

Bart is, in addition, a Social Worker who has worked with programs that help people recover from psychiatric disabilities.
