At the last WHS Board meeting a proposal for a formal Engaged Buddhists Committee was approved. Russ Hodin is chair and I am co-chair of this committee. We held our first organizational meeting on October 16, which was attended by 9 sangha members. Our focus will be to join with or sponsor social or environmental justice opportunities which reflect Buddhist Dharma, both within the sangha and within the greater community. If you are interested in helping to organize and focus this new endeavor, please let either Russ (email@example.com) or myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) know.
