From their website
As part of an emerging set of programs, research, and initiatives related to contemplative social justice, this one-day event will provide essential perspectives, tools and techniques for individuals working on social justice related initiatives.
We will be joined by The Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, PhD., Dean of Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary and a leader in the fields of womanist theology, racial reconciliation and sexuality, and the black church; and the Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Zen priest and a social visionary that applies wisdom teachings and practice to social issues, and sees transformative social change as America’s next great movement. Through facilitated conversations and smaller group discussions, Dean Douglas and Rev. williams will work with participates to practice the application and use of the tools and techniques presented.
Participates will not only leave the program with a better understanding of contemplative practice and its potential impact on their efforts related to social justice, but they will also have a new set of interreligious tools and techniques to apply to their practice.
