Activists are becoming more and more aware that we need to challenge inequity and privilege within progressive movements. This is tough and necessary work if we're going to win our fights in real and lasting ways. White supremacy, privilege, and the legacy of racial injustice permeate our culture, social and environmental movements, and spiritual communities- the very places where many of us work for positive change. Please join us for this discussion of how to discover the radical dharma that truly makes room for the liberation of all, whether in our personal lives, activism, or workplace. This webinar is free, open to all, and will be recorded for posting.

Assuming that you agree with her Ben, how do you personally think white supremacy is permeating our spiritual communities?

As I mentioned in the OP, the thread was created as an announcement. Threads created in the Engaged Buddhism sub-forum, a special purpose forum, are not for "debate".

Do I agree with Rev Angel re: issues of gender, race and privilege? Yes, I do. However, I am not going to get into a discussion here on this sub forum and probably not elsewhere on DW until I have the time to give it due attention. If you are interested in the inflection of socio-cultural issues in our spiritual traditions then I suggest you begin by reading Rev Angel's book "Radical Dharma". It might also be good to read some of the works on the history of Buddhism in the west by people like McMahan and Lopez.
Kind regards,
Ben
