Buddhism and Social Justice: Buddhist Peace Fellowship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Meet with the co-directors and members of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship (BPF), a national organization exploring the intersections of Buddhism, mindfulness, and social justice. We will share examples of radical Buddhist direct action in issues of police brutality and environmental justice. Participants will have an opportunity to get to know each other and share our political interests and practice histories. We will also dream big together about how Buddhists, meditators, and mindfulness practitioners can contribute to collective liberation.

Katie Loncke

Buddhist Peace Fellowship
Perhaps you, like Katie Loncke, are sick of the neoliberal co-opting of mindfulness, and the racist appropriation of Asian / Buddhist aesthetics to make commodities seem more "spiritual." As a BPF Co-Director, Katie loves meeting others who want to use spiritual practice to support revolution.
