Monthly WAG: 1st Sunday’s
February 3, 2018@1:00 pm/3:00 pm EST
RSVP Here for 1st Sunday of the Month
Feb. to June 2018, 10 AM - Noon PST / 1 - 3 PM EST Calls
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.
* WAG is inclusive of all levels of experience with anti-racist work and Buddhism. We are all learning together.
* All kinds of anti-racism work can be brought in for discussion.
This could include conversations with people in your day to day life (sangha, work, family, etc.), more formal collective organizing against structural and systemic racism, internal learning and unlearning, etc.
* New folks can drop in at any time.
* This is also a chance to practice facilitating white anti-racist discussion in a supportive space, for anyone who wants to try that.
We need more intersections between the overarching, powerful Buddhists for racial justice statements and the daily grind of local diversity programs, learning through sharing, and continental multi-lineage conversations, please join us in our attempt to connect the dots here at NABA!
We hope to see you 1st Sunday each month!
