Buddha + Black Lives Matter: A Racial Justice Reflection Toolkit
Want more Buddhist-inspired tools, reflections, and resources for supporting anti-racist movements?
We’ve put together a collection tailor-made for Buddhists who believe that Black Lives Matter. (<– check the link for more info on the movement behind this phrase.)
* Solidarity Sangha Action: a How-To for sparking conversation in your spiritual community
* Best-Of Recent Buddhist and Racial Justice Writing: inspiring, informative, and in-depth resources for Buddhists concerned with social justice.
* Nonviolent Direct Action Quiz: given two examples of Buddhists participating in direct actions for racial justice, decide for yourself how effective you think such actions are.
As an organization devoted to Buddhism + social justice, we are deeply moved by, and grateful for, the incredible Black-led and ally-supported movement organizing coming out of Ferguson, Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis, Oakland, and so many other places. That these movements are visibly helmed by black women and queer people, makes them all the more heartening.
We hope this toolkit continues to further the larger work for collective liberation.
