Member Phone Call with Debra White Plume, Harsha Walia, and Diana Pei Wu!
Continuing with this month’s theme of Decolonizing Our Sanghas (an unusual, collective take on the Fifth Precept of Buddhist ethics), we are thrilled to announce that this month’s BPF member phone call will host:
White Plume leads trainings and tours on nonviolent direct actions to stop the tar sands and Keystone XL Pipeline.
The amazing activist-scholar Harsha Walia, based in Vancouver, Indigenous Coast Salish territories, who “believes in overgrowing the logic of the state.”
In addition to being a feminist organizer, Walia is the author of Undoing Border Imperialism, forthcoming this October from AK Press.
Formerly of The Ruckus Society, she has helped train community groups on direct action tactics for movements around environmental justice, immigration, and more. This video gives a sense of the practical, empowering skills that Diana has helped to teach!
Holy smokes, y’all — we cannot wait for this conversation on decolonization, spirituality, and transformation through social and political movements.
