Each season our sangha supports an organization, individual or event that is enacting bodhisattva work in the community. Our purpose is to raise awareness in our own sangha about contemporary concerns and join in support of those working to alleviate suffering with wisdom and compassion. We are particularly committed to environmental and social justice as central issues of our times as we care for the earth and recognize the dignity and value of all beings.
If you would like to nominate a group, individual, or event for consideration, please send the Guiding Council a short description of how your suggested project aligns with the values of our practice.
