Presentation: “Redlining in Seattle – Mapping Inequality” @ Online (see listing)
Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm

From the 34th District Democrats:

Ubax Gardheere will present a program “Redlining in Seattle – Mapping Inequality” to help members of the 34th Dems and the community at large learn the history behind this topic. For most of its history Seattle was a segregated city, as committed to white supremacy as any location in America. People of color were excluded from most jobs, most neighborhoods and schools, and many stores, restaurants, hotels, and other commercial establishments, even hospitals. As in other western states, the system of severe racial discrimination in Seattle targeted not just African Americans but also Native Americans, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, people of Mexican ancestry, and also, at times, Jews. Join us.

July 27, 7 pm on Zoom

Concerned about going back into the world? The Buddha’s teaching provides a refuge in its articulation of our transcendent potential (Buddha), the path of meditation, ethics, and wisdom leading to awakening (Dhamma), and the community which can support us in such practice (Sangha). Ordained in the Thai Forest Tradition, Ajahn Kovilo and Tan Nisabho have trained under senior teachers such as Ajahn Pasanno, Ajahn Piak, Ajahn Anan, and Ajahn Jayasaro. Ayya Soma is a bhikkhuni ordained in the Theravada lineage and co-founder of Empty Cloud Monastery in New Jersey. Ajahn Kovilo and Tan Nisabho are part of the Clear Mountain Monastery Project, the aspiration of a Thai Forest Monastery in the greater Seattle Area.
