Courageous Conversations About Race - The Playlist

By Centre Team on Mon, 7 Sep, 2020 - 14:52

A series of conversations amongst panels of Order members talking about race from their personal experience. It’s hoped that as many institutions are reflecting on systemic racism, we as a Buddhist community can reflect on how we can make Triratna more diverse, and our sanghas more reflective of the populations that live where some of our centers are situated.  

The next conversation will feature Order members of mixed culture and race. It will take place on September 26th at 11:00 PST | 13:00 México | 14:00 ...
