Calling all Buddhists and Friends in New York City!
On Friday, September 20, join the Buddhist Action Coalition for a Buddhist-led event prior to the Youth Climate Strike. We will chant, sit, sing, and ring our bells for climate justice, then do a walking meditation to the gathering site of the Youth Climate Strike. Then we will spend the afternoon supporting the striking youth as they speak out loudly for their future and the future of our planet. Please bring a small bell if you have one, and feel free to wear any robe, rakusu or other visual sign of your practice for this event.
This event is hosted by Buddhist Action Coalition.

One Earth Sangha offers a global list of events that express a Buddhist / mindfulness response to ecological crises. We invite you to join or add events that develop and demonstrate our interdependence with all of life! Events that address multiple issues (e.g., racism, economic injustice and environmental health) are encouraged. You’re invited to list events from your local sangha, including earth-oriented day-longs, retreats and even regular sangha meetings. We also want you to share demonstration and direct action events. You, the members of our Sangha, are encouraged to submit events, whether they be from the Dharma community, other faith groups or secular, where you wish to gather other Buddhist / mindfulness practitioners to participate. To submit an event, please email us.
This growing list of events will always be available here and in the main menu under “Get Involved.”
