An evening of presentation and discussion for the extended New York Buddhist communities concerning the Rohingya Genocide tragedy

About this Event

You are invited to an evening of presentation and discussion for the extended New York Buddhist communities concerning the history and development of the Rohingya humanitarian tragedy in Myanmar and the resulting refugee crisis.

The evening’s conversation will focus on the causes and conditions of the crisis along with the role that Buddhist laity and monastic communities have played in the rhetoric and violence.

Led by an esteemed guest panel, this open discussion will hopefully bring a better understanding to the situation and identify compassionate ways of seeking justice and delivering relief to those suffering.
