Philadelphia Ethical Society

The Philadelphia Ethical Society gives the following descriptive information:

What is the Ethical Culture Movement?
The Ethical Culture Movement was founded in 1876 by Felix Adler. Our Movement established the country's first Settlement Houses and the Visiting Nurses Association. We helped initiate free legal aid for the poor and served as a sanctuary to European refugees during World War II. The Ethical Society of Philadelphia was founded in 1885 and was, in turn, a founding member of our national organization, the American Ethical Union. With chapters from Boston to Los Angeles, our guiding principle remains the primacy of ethics in daily life.
