Turning Toward: White People Working to Dismantle White Supremacy

Who we are: Turning Toward is a group for white-identifying dharma practitioners to hold each other accountable and encourage each other in doing the inner and outer work of dismantling racism and acting in alliance with people of color in a white supremacist society.

We will be reading Radical Dharma by angel Kyodo Williams, Lama Rod Owens, and Jasmine Syedullah. We will share excerpts in each meeting and attendees are encouraged to read the book as we go along.

Because of the relational and intimate nature of this group's work, attendees are asked to commit to attending at least 2 of 3 sessions (and the first meeting is mandatory for establishing our group together).

When we meet: July 12th, August 9th, & September 13th from 5-7pm (on Zoom)

How you can join: Turning Toward is now accepting new members! We open to new members 3 times throughout the year. Coming to the first meeting of each session isn’t a commitment, it’s an exploration to see if this group is a good fit. 

If you're interested in attending, please email Jill Gaulding and Liz Roemer at [email protected].
