"love and justice are not two. without inner change, there can be no outer change; without collective change, no change matters."
Zen teacher and social activist, angel Kyodo williams, reminds us that societies can change on a massive scale. At one time, slavery was considered an economic necessity, but new ways were found because society could no longer bear it. Angel asks, can today’s society reject individualism on that scale?
Lama Rod Owens and angel Kyodo williams discuss the challenges of being teachers of color in predominantly white communities. Read their conversation in the Winter 2014 issue of Buddhadharma.
Angel Kyodo Williams speaks on climate change, connecting the roots of climate change to racism, white-skin privilege and hegemony, and an economic system that demands the degradation of human beings and the planet.
angel Kyodo williams, the "change angel," is Founder of the national Transformative Change, for which she now serves as a Senior Fellow and Director of Vision, and Founder Emeritus of Berkeley-based Center for Transformative Change. Both bridge inner and outer change for social justice activists towards wholeness, wellbeing and effective action. A social visionary and leading voice for transformative social change, she is the author of the critically-acclaimed Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living With Fearlessness and Grace and co-author of the latest Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love & Liberation.
