The Buddhist Action Coalition


We are a coalition of New York City area Buddhists, dedicated to bringing Buddhist morals and values into action in order to bring about true justice. Our Mission is to organize and inspire compassionate Buddhist initiatives in advancing social, economic, and environmental justice for the benefit of all beings, undertaken through advocacy and nonviolent direct action.

We meet monthly, and all are welcome. To keep up with what we’re doing, sign up for our mailing list below. We meet the first Monday of the month at Union Theological Seminary.

Our next General Meeting is Monday, October 1, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Union Theological Seminary, 3041 Broadway.

We are dedicated to bringing the Buddhist values of compassion, wisdom and interdependence into our national conversation on social and environmental justice issues. Find out more about us.
