Deed Before Creed

Members of the Philadelphia Ethical Society share a commitment to the inherent worth of every person, ethical relationships, and social justice.  We try to live our values in our daily personal interactions, in supporting for our Camp Linden summer children’s programming, and by engaging in social and political regional, national, and international issues through our Ethical Action Committee.

Major Ongoing Project of the Ethical Society: Camp Linden

We are deeply committed to our Camp Linden youth program, an outdoor education and recreation day camp for inner-city children. Volunteers help throughout the year with maintaining the camp. There are also opportunities for volunteering with the children during the summer program. More Info

Other Ethical Action Projects and Partnerships

Most anyone may participate in activities organized by the Ethical Action Committee, which meets monthly either in-person or virtually by way of video-conferencing. Contact the EAC chairperson for more information. Some of the projects and partnerships are listed below.

The Ethical Society engages in civic affairs but does not support individual political candidates or political parties.
