The Buddhist Peace Fellowship was founded in 1978. Its mission is to
serve as a catalyst and agent for socially engaged Buddhism. Through a
worldwide network of members and chapters including Buddhists from all
traditions, BPF’s programs, publications, and practice groups link
Buddhist teachings of wisdom and compassion with social engagement and
The Humboldt Area Chapter of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship
is open to any and all in Humboldt County who share BPF’s mission and
who would like to participate in its development.
Those forming the group have already been involved with a
variety of activities related to BPF’s mission, including prison and
jail work, outreach to homeless persons, letter writing campaigns, and
work for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the death penalty. They
will continue to explore ways of engaging with broader peace,
environmental, and social justice issues.
