Fulfilling the Promise of America

“We hold these truths to be self-evident,
That all men are created equal,
That they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable rights,
That among these are Life,
Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness”

You’re invited to a symposium on
the ambitious meaning of the
Preamble to the Declaration of Independence,
deliberating what is meant now by “all men”
and by “the unalienable [right to] life”

Live: July 2, 3-5 pm Notable House, 189 Ellsworth San Francisco
Virtual: July 3, ZOOM, Noon Pacific time https://zoom.us/j/94131824284?pwd=RzI0ZEY1eEkrbkxFemNOMHFHbUZXZz09


There is an argument to be made that the USA was born of a cosmic ideal, expressed above in the quote from
The Declaration of Independence.

There are those who assert that the nation loses its status as a frontline leader when it falters in expanding the inclusionary sense of the phrase “all men,” and when the meaning of the “right to life” is abstracted from equality of access to land. This symposium affords you the opportunity to deliberate these points.
