NABA offers monthly opportunities for POC Buddhists for racial justice to gather. This multi-lineage container provides nourishment, solidarity-building, probes into larger questions, and action-oriented committees couched on the teachings of the Buddha. These calls are consistent gatherings where POC Buddhists for racial justice across North America may be relieved of the burden of having to explain racism to others and simply be accepted, as together we explore justice issues and resolutions in our personal and global spheres. POC Buddhists across traditions have something unique to offer race relations at micro and macro levels too.
Regular calls every 3rd Tuesday of the month
starting at 11:30 AM PST / 2:30 PM EST.
The next call will be February 20th.
Register for upcoming 2018 calls here:
February 20 -- An Exploration.
We will consider questions such as the following:
-Are fight and flight the only options in the face of injustice?
-What Dharma-based resolutions have you tried or would like to try?
-And what happened or resulted when you did try?
-Explore silence as a solution vs. being silenced as an injustice.
March 20 -- Peace and Social Action.
Coinciding with NABA's multi-lineage
racial justice webinar by
Katie Loncke of Buddhist Peace Fellowship and co-presenter from another community, please join all interested in racial justice on this date.
April to December
NABA's White Affinities Group is committed to continue its monthly space
to talk about the work we're doing to end white supremacy and work for racial justice,
whether that's in our sanghas, in the U.S. and beyond --
what we are learning, what the challenges are, and how this connects with our Buddhist practice.
Our hope is that this kind of space could support and strengthen people's local organizing rather than taking away from it.
NABA provides a unique opportunity to connect across Buddhist lineages and across geographic regions.
