Understanding Power, Privilege, Intent, and Impact in Catholic-Buddhist and Buddhist-Catholic Social Change Initiatives

  • Mushim Patricia Ikeda East Bay Meditation Center


Today, June 27, 2015, along with many in my Buddhist community in Oakland, California, I rejoice in yesterday’s Supreme Court decision that made gay and same-sex marriage legal in all fifty states. I mourn our murdered spiritual leaders at “Mother Emanuel” AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. And I affirm the liberatory power of the #BlackLivesMatter movement for all people.
