Discussions about the food we eat can be intense and divisive. The cruel treatment of animals used to provide humans with food, along with environmental and social justice issues, can divide progressive groups that agree on many things. How do we work through differences about personal decisions about what we consume? How do changing social norms affect what we put in our bodies? Hugh Taft-Morales shares his unfinished personal journey into this ethical thicket.
Hugh Taft-Morales joined the Baltimore Ethical Society as its professional leader in 2010, the same year he was certified by the American Ethical Union as an Ethical Culture Leader. He also serves as Leader of the Ethical Humanist Society of Philadelphia. His presence in Ethical Culture has been termed “invigorating.” Taft-Morales lives in Takoma Park, Maryland, with his wife Maureen, a Latin American Analyst with the Congressional Research Service, with whom he has three beloved children, Sean, Maya, and Justin.
