NABA offers monthly space 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 opportunities 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 has something unique to offer race relations at micro and macro levels too.
This month we will explore 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.
