Community Ethics Slams On Monday's Access Utah

The Utah Statesman

On Monday's Access Utah, we preview an Ethics Slam: an event modeled around a Poetry Slam in the sense that it occurs in a community space and it is open mic. Members of the community are asked to share their thoughts in a civil, respectful manner about a pressing social issue. This slam will focus on responding to climate change. The event takes place on Monday, September 9th at 7:00 p.m at Lucky Slice pizza in Logan.

 

Another Ethics Slam will be held on September 23 at 7:00 p.m. on the topic “Is Censorship Ever Appropriate?” It will be held at Weber County Library - Pleasant Valley Branch.

Our guests for the hour include Richard Greene, Professor of Philosophy & Director of Richard Richards Institute for Ethics at Weber State University, Rachel Robison-Greene, Post Doctoral Fellow in Philosophy at USU, and USU students Preston Fearing, Abigail Slade, and Cristian Chavez.
