Turning Toward: White People Working to Dismantle White Supremacy
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. Attendees have read at least one of the following three books: So You Want to Talk About Race (Ijeoma Oluo), Awakening Together (Larry Yang), or Mindful of Race (Ruth King). Because of the relational and intimate nature of this group's work, attendees are asked to commit to attending 4 once-monthly sessions.
Sponsors: Liz Roemer, Rebecca Behizadeh
Time and Dates: The following are Sundays from 5-7pm: April 5, May 10, & May 31, 2020
Greater Boston Zen Center or via ZOOM (depending on COVID guidance)
552 Massachusetts Avenue #208
Cambridge (in Central Square), MA 02139
How you can join: Turning Toward is 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.
