The Washington Buddhist Peace Fellowship (WBPF) is a coalition of Buddhists and like-minded individuals dedicated to serving as a proactive force for peace, social and economic justice, and a sustainable environment. WBPF holds public meetings and sponsors a wide variety of talks, workshops, retreats and other programs with spiritual leaders, peace facilitators and experts in conflict resolution to help develop skills for the effective promotion of peaceful change. In addition, we work closely with other peace organizations to optimize mutual understanding and cooperative efforts. The WBPF website hosts a discussion forum and provides news, information and resources such as links to local dharma centers, notices of upcoming Buddhist teachings, peace events and links to other groups.
