Baltimore is a complex “city of neighborhoods,” where history meets the future. It was the birthplace of the U.S. national anthem, a leading port for immigrants, and the home to Edgar Allan Poe, Edith Hamilton, Frederick Douglass, Billie Holiday, and John Waters. Declining manufacturing industries have given rise to a new service-oriented economy. In 1951, the Baltimore Ethical Society was the first racially integrated congregation and Sunday School in Baltimore.
Every year, Future of Ethical Societies has gathered to build community and rejuvenate our shared passion in humanity, the earth and social justice. This year young adults from across the nation will meet in Baltimore to explore what it means as people who hold sacred relationship, learning, and ethical living to bear witness to a city that encapsulates our struggles and striving as a nation. What does it mean to trace the narrative of place, history and identity? Who is heard and who is seen? What could it mean for us as we move in our own city and neighborhood?
