Moral Imagination In Crisis


NEW DATE AND TIME! Please join us on Wednesday, May 20, from 1:30-2:30 p.m. EDT (UTC -4), Carter Center Senior Advisor for Human Rights Karin Ryan will host a conversation between Jacqueline Novogratz and media executive Pat Mitchell about Novogratz’s latest book, "Manifesto for a Moral Revolution: Practices to Build a Better World."

The discussion will address how we all might use this moment of uncertainty to enact a moral revolution – one that asks us to move from a system that puts profit at its center to one that insists on humanity and the earth at its center.

As this timely book makes its way to readers, an international pandemic has thrown into sharp relief the gaping wounds of our era, from a broken health system to climate change and skyrocketing inequality and growing divisiveness.

Our existing institutions have run their course, but we have yet to reimagine new ones to replace them in an interdependent world.
