Online Buddhism in Society Discussion Series with Lucy Andrews

October 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Please join us on Saturday October 10th, 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. (Pacific Time), for an online talk and Q&A session about transformative justice with Lucy Andrews as part of our “Buddhism in Society” Discussion Series.

Lucy co-leads the Unpacking Whiteness program at San Francisco Zen Center and is a PhD candidate in environmental science at UC Berkeley, where she studies ways to manage water resources that further climate justice and ecosystem health.

At the center of Lucy’s Buddhist practice is a commitment to nonviolence and racial justice. To support this commitment, Lucy sits on the independent advisory board on policing at UC Berkeley and serves as a mediator for the SEEDS Community Resolution Center, a nonprofit in the East Bay that provides facilitation, mediation, and restorative justice services to community members in conflict as an alternative to judicial and legal systems.

In her talk, “Another Path is Possible: From Carceral Delusions to Transformative Justice,” Lucy will explore the emergence and persistence of policing and other carceral logics in the United States. She will also highlight ways that we can work together to resist policing and incarceration in our communities, devise alternate methods for the repair of harm, and practice justice in multi-racial communities, as informed by our bodhisattva vows and the desire to end suffering and delusion.

“Buddhism in Society” aims to explore and understand how to bring the principles of awareness, mindfulness and creative responses to difficult problems present in our communities.
