“An extraordinary manuscript… Well done indeed! Aimee Murphy has managed to compile a powerful, in-depth and scholarly work with extensive research beyond anything I have ever read on the issues. Clearly, it is not an easy read (how could it be otherwise?) and while I am not a scholar, I care very deeply about the core tenets at issue and I have spent a good deal of my adult life publicly advocating and defending them. I wish the success of this remarkable work!”

Big news: our founder Aimee Murphy has a book coming out July 2022! Following its release, Aimee will be hitting the road this autumn to spread the Consistent Life Ethic — a human-centered system of values which transcends party differences — across the United States and beyond.

With the launch of her challenging and inspirational first solo book, Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All, Murphy will confront our polarized culture with a call to consistency, authenticity, and compassion for our fellow humans by inviting our communities to engage with these heavy issues in a way that rehumanizes.

 

On her 90-day cross-country trek, Aimee will travel over 13,400 miles from coast to coast, tow and sleep in a pop-up camper, and work on the road. The tour will include dozens of book launch events and lectures on the Consistent Life Ethic philosophy of human rights at schools, libraries, community organizations, churches and more.

 

To cover travel expenses including gasoline, food, and internet for working on the road, we are seeking to raise $5,000+ specifically for this speaking tour. Donations in excess of what is needed for the tour will cover other publication expenses such as purchasing books to give away, and Aimee's wages while traveling. 

 

To reach the most people with this vital message, Aimee will be giving talks for low- or no-cost, and we’ll need all the help we can get to set up and advertise for these impactful events. If you live in any of the cities on our planned list, please reach out to aimee@rehumanizeintl.org to help us lay the groundwork for an awesome event in your community!

 

Whether or not we’ll be stopping in your city, we hope that you can see the immense value of bringing this message to a world so divided by fear and dehumanization. Please partner with us to make this opportunity to advance human dignity a reality!

If you donate $50 or more through the link above, we'll send you a signed copy of the book when it is released, as a thank-you gift!

Book Synopsis

Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All

Who deserves human rights? The answer to this question is the crux of all moral and political action in society, and defines our character as individuals and as nations.

 

Aimee Murphy seeks to answer this vital question in this accessible and succinct handbook on the Consistent Life Ethic, a moral philosophy whose central principle is that each and every human being has inherent dignity from the womb to the tomb, and therefore deserves to live free from violence. Rehumanize: A Vision to Secure Human Rights for All includes a digestible yet systematic analysis of the ethics, history, and public policy surrounding modern issues of dehumanization, and casts a rehumanizing vision of a world beyond violence.

 

Beyond the confines of political parties or religious exclusion, the founder of Rehumanize International communicates an aspiration to an inclusive ideal of a consistent movement of every human standing for every human. Scholars, leaders, grassroots activists—anyone concerned for the common good—will find this resource an indispensable cornerstone for their outreach and advocacy for decades to come.

The Author

Aimee Murphy is the founder of Rehumanize International, a non-partisan, secular organization dedicated to bringing an end to all aggressive violence against human beings through education, discourse, and action. For this world-changing work, Murphy has been featured in news media outlets such as MSNBC, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, The New York Times, The Washington Post, VICE News, and many more. Aimee is a queer disabled Latina, an infertile Catholic revert, and a feminist pro-lifer dedicated to the Consistent Life Ethic through and through. Though born and raised in California, she currently resides in Pittsburgh with her profoundly supportive husband Kyle, their dog Domino, and—in the spirit of radical hospitality—whichever friends may wander into the Murphy household. She has a B.A. in Ethics, History, and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, and though formal schooling has proven difficult, she still loves to devour a good nonfiction book for research. In her free time, Aimee loves to garden, play board games, hike, camp, and use up craft supplies like nobody's business.
