Zen Priest to “Stand on the Side of Love” in Arizona

Posted on

Meanwhile, back here in the U.S., there are plans brewing for a National Day of Action in Arizona on May 29th to speak out against SB1070, the anti-immigrant bill that I blogged about last month. At least one Buddhist will be in the crowd — James Ford, who is both a Soto Zen Priest as well as a Unitarian Universalist minister. Here is Ford’s entry on the subject on his blog, Monkey Mind. (Thanks to Ari of the Zen Peacemaker blog for telling us about this.)

Anybody else planning on being in Phoenix on May 29?

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
