The Humboldt Area Chapter of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship

The Arcata Zen Group along with fellow local Buddhist groups locally have been helping to coordinate a Buddhist Peace Fellowship chapter here in the Humbolt County area. The local BPF website is: www.HumboldtBPF.org.

The Buddhist Peace Fellowship was founded in 1978. Its mission is to serve as a catalyst and agent for socially engaged Buddhism. Through a worldwide network of members and chapters including Buddhists from all traditions, BPF’s programs, publications, and practice groups link Buddhist teachings of wisdom and compassion with social engagement and social change.

The Humboldt Area Chapter of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship is open to any and all in Humboldt County who share BPF’s mission and who would like to participate in its development.

Those forming the group have already been involved with a variety of activities related to BPF’s mission, including prison and jail work, outreach to homeless persons, letter writing campaigns, and work for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the death penalty. They will continue to explore ways of engaging with broader peace, environmental, and social justice issues.

You can subscribe to the chapter's mailing list by sending an email (humbpf-subscribe -at- yahoogroups -dot- com).
