What Does It Mean to Be Good?: Exploring Morality in the Midst of Structural Oppression

Most of us believe we are good people. But if we are all good people, who are the people responsible for supporting structural oppression like racism, sexism, and heterosexism? If we hope to be “good,” what are our moral responsibilities in a society of privilege, power, and oppression?

This is the focus of “What Does It Mean to Be Good? Exploring Morality in the Midst of Structural Oppression” a free conversation with Brittany M. Wake on Tuesday, February, 12th, 2019.

This program is hosted by People's Food Co-op and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
