Episode Thirteen- Dawn Haney

In this interview, I spoke with Dawn Haney, a co-director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship. The mission of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship (BPF), founded in 1978, is to serve as a catalyst for socially engaged Buddhism. Their purpose is to help beings liberate themselves from the suffering that manifests in individuals, relationships, institutions, and social systems. Dawn Haney brings her passions for social justice, good non-profit management, and the dharma to her role as Co-Director for BPF. We spoke about Dawn’s professional and personal journey to the Director role, BPF as an institution, and current issues and topics within mindfulness and Buddhism. We also examined a variety of social issues including racism, community activism, and gendered violence from a Buddhist perspective.This interview originally aired lived on KALX 90.7 FM on Women Hold up Half the Sky on February 28th, 2015.
