A monthly lecture series that challenges conventional views of social justice, setting a provocative vision for a better, fairer world. Hosted at London’s c18th home of radical thinking: New Unity, Newington Green N16.
Are you prepared to question the status quo and create a new vision of social justice? Do you question the motives of those who currently get to define ‘common sense’, or ‘what’s fair for individuals and society’? Do you ask, ‘does it have to be this way?’ Would you like to become part of the latest chapter in a history of social reform that stretches back, uninterrupted, for 300 years?
Then New Unity’s lecture series ‘Voices of Dissent’ is for you. This is the latest chapter in a history of radical thought that stretches back to the early eighteenth century. Come and help to forge a path towards a fairer, more just world. Come and be stimulated, enraged, encouraged or just made to think, in the place where dissenters such as Thomas Paine advocated independence for the colonies, where Mary Wollstonecraft evolved her feminism and where Thomas Jefferson came to listen.
Our speakers are united in their commitment to meaningful social reform. They’re all leading experts in their field, be that economics, politics, science, ecology, or social justice. They refuse to go with the consensus, preferring to ask the difficult questions that others avoid. And then suggest radical answers.
This series is for those of us prepared to take that journey with them. It may sometimes be uncomfortable. But it will always reward and inspire.
£5 including a glass of wine/juice.
