Inclusive Gender Identity Poc Perspectives
October 9, 2017@4:00 pm/6:00 pm PDT| Free
The next NABA webinar on gender and race will be October 9th, Monday, 4 to 6 PM PDT / 7 to 9 PM EDT. Significantly more LGBTQI adults identify themselves to be persons of color, making gender identity an even more critical issue among POCs and POC Buddhists. Gender identity and race intersect in ways that are more relevant for the marginalized, for those confronted with hatred and supremacy, and among Buddhist sanghas than many of us realize. For those immersed in the realities of these issues and for allies interested in learning more about ways to support those with non-dominant gender and racial identities, the esteemed presenters Dr. Kamilah Majied and the Honorable Gretchen Rohr will lead this interactive session.
