  • Red Clay Sangha, Hospital Drive

Many of us have issues that intersect with racism such as patriarchy, ageism, sexism, ableism; we see our exploration of these topics as a vital part of our practice.  We initiated our sangha work in this area with a pilgrimage to the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery in March, 2019, and shortly thereafter established this group, which meets monthly to examine how we unknowingly participate in patriarchal white supremacy and find ways to address it in our lives.  Guided by the precepts, the brahmavihara, the Bodhisattva vows, and other teachings, we will weave our understanding of white supremacy into our practice as Buddhists.

The format of the discussion is evolving, and will likely continue to do so, as the needs of the group and its members change. Whatever your background or history or identity, if you recognize this as an important area for your development, you are very welcome to join the group.
