When & Where
NYC Friends of Clearwater and NY Society For Ethical Culture
New York City Friends of Clearwater is an environmental education organization that believes in celebration and through music and community. We focus on the most pressing environmental issues of our time – stopping hydrofracking, fossil fuel infrastructure, Indian Point, promoting renewable energy and protecting our waterways. Pete Seeger’s Environmental Educators Network is a project of NYCFC to promote Pete’s ideals and the promise of youth. We are a chartered sloop club of the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, both founded by folk musician and activist Pete Seeger 45 years ago to clean up the Hudson River.
The New York Society for Ethical Culture is the cornerstone of the Ethical Culture movement founded in 1876 by Dr. Felix Adler. Ethical Culture is a religion centered on ethics, not theology, whose mission is to encourage respect for humanity and nature and to create a better world. Members are committed to personal ethical development in their relationships with others and in activities involving social justice and environmental stewardship.Throughout our history we have helped create significant community institutions that have had a long-lasting effect in promoting civil society.
