This week at the Ethical Society of Austin

April 30

Warrior Cops: The Impact of Police Militarization

Part of our Ethical Action Committee’s ongoing series on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals: #16 Peace Justice and Strong Institutions.

Working from the book, Rise of the Warrior Cop, Hans Maverick leads a discussion on growing militarization of police forces — in large cities and small — across America. What does it mean when civilian police adopt the tactics, language, and armaments of the military? Individuals who have been directly impacted by violent police tactics will be invited to share their experiences.


Sunday Ethical Education for Kids (SEEK) will be in session, from 10:30 until noon, the same time as our meeting.

5604 Manor Road

10:00 am – Coffee and conversation

10:30 am – Program begins


As part of our emphasis on Quality Education (Sustainable Development Goal #4), Ethical Society of Austin will hold a food drive for the next four weeks in support of nutrition for Central Texas school children. Our goal is 500 meals for this drive. Please bring nutrition dense canned goods or cash donations to support this effort. One dollar can be used to provide four meals.
