The Coming Good Society

Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz

Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz

After decades of promoting human rights, Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz will challenge us to think hard about how rights evolve with changing circumstances, and what rights will look like ten, twenty, or fifty years from now. In these Minns Lectures, he will detail the many frontiers of rights today and the debates surrounding them.

Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz served as president of the Unitarian Universalist Association before becoming executive director of Amnesty International USA in 1994 and then president of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee from 2010–16. He is co-author with Sushma Raman of The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights (Harvard University Press).
