Engaged Buddhist dialogue project

The long-standing (US-based) Buddhist Peace Fellowship has announced a year-long dialogue combining Buddhist practice and political activism, "The system stinks". Co-organised by engaged Buddhist blogger Katie Loncke, the project looks very interactive (at present it seems to be phone-based but if there are non-US participants they can probably be pushed to include skype participants). So far it all looks good - full participation for $45, broke for $30 and the contemporary readings will be made available free anyway.
