Picnic With Buddhist/Isaiah Social Justice Group
Are you interested in adding social justice work to your Buddhist practice? Our multi-sangha ISAIAH affiliated Buddhist group is having an outdoor event Thursday May 27 from 6-8 at Newell Park in St Paul (on Pierce Butler Route just west of Snelling). We welcome ALL who are interested.
The first hour will be spent getting to know each other better. Bring food for yourself as this will be a Covid potluck. In the second hour we will consider together how our Buddhist practices and insights can help ground our activism, and how activism can be an important component of Buddhist practice.
We will also invite you to engage in a simple and specific action for social justice. Examples could inlcude creating a postcard to mail to your state legislator or our Governor regarding Line 3, a basic social media activity to amplify a social justice issue, or an option to sign up for ISAIAH coordinated door to door literature drops.
Please RSVP to Anita McDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get a general idea of numbers. We are looking forward to meeting you.
