Burma Human Rights Day Benefit: March 9 in Oakland
Where are Burma’s reforms going?
What can you do to help?
Since last year, the U.S. has been warming up its relationship with Burma and lifting the sanctions in recognition of the ongoing reforms. President Obama paid a historic visit to the country last November. However, there are serious challenges and concerns as the military and their cronies are still firmly in control of the country’s political and economic power while many forms of abuse continues. An election is scheduled to be held in 2015, but no one is sure what would be the likely outcome. Come share the expert’s opinions on where the current reforms are going and what you can do to help while enjoying authentic Burmese food and Cultural performances. Also meet and connect with activists, Burma supporters and tabling NGOs related to Burma.

There’s a huge mandala of people and organizations working under the umbrella of “socially engaged Buddhism.” We like to highlight what others are up to, so you can connect with the people and issues that you feel most strongly about!
