Ethics in Action

The foundation for all we do at NYSEC is an emphasis on ethics and doing for others.  Our ongoing efforts include the work of our Social Service Board, the Ethical Action Committee, the Advocacy Forum and a number of other efforts by the Society and its members.

In response to ongoing issues in New York State facilities, the Society organized a Justice for Juveniles Coalition of concerned organizations and individuals to educate, advocate and effect change in our state's Juvenile Justice system.

The Society also participates in a number of coalitions and partnerships on different issues.  These include:

Periodically, the Society also honors notable individuals and institutions with the Ethical Humanist and Community Service awards.
