Mark your calendars for Thursday, August 25. Aimee Murphy will be in our city to talk about her new book Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All.
About the book
Who deserves human rights? The answer to this question is the crux of all moral and political action in society, and defines our character as individuals and as nations. Aimee Murphy seeks to answer this vital question in this accessible and succinct handbook on the Consistent Life Ethic, a moral philosophy whose central principle is that each and every human being has inherent dignity from conception to natural death, and therefore deserves to live free from violence. Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All includes a digestible yet systematic analysis of the history, ethics, and public policy surrounding modern issues of dehumanization, and casts a rehumanizing vision of a world beyond violence. Beyond the confines of political parties or religious exclusion, the founder of Rehumanize International communicates an aspiration to an inclusive ideal of a consistent movement of every human standing for every human. Activists, scholars, and leaders young and old will find this resource an indispensable cornerstone for their outreach and advocacy for decades to come.
Rehumanize International Conference will be virtual on October 15
Rehumanize International is meeting virtual again this year via Hopin on October 15. Consider applying to be a speaker or buy your ticket for the virtual event.
I intend to organize an in-person watching, so mark your calendars.
