Tzu Chi USA
Mark your calendars for Tzu Chi USA’s first ever annual walk. We’ll show our solidarity for and commitment to a greener Earth and more resilient communities, just like we have for the past 30 years. Whether you walk, run, or bike, we’re determined to make every step count.
The event features delicious vegetarian food for purchase, music performance, exhibition, walkathon, candlelight prayer ceremony and other activities.
- Our walk will help fund-raise for disaster recovery and raise awareness around greener living.
- Tzu Chi USA, robust in its disaster relief work since 1989, is committed to offering compassion and disaster relief to families in need.
- Steps for the Earth is an occasion for those who’ve been touched by our work in the past to reunite and for those who support our mission to make contributions to help more families recover from disaster.
- Plus, we’ll share our initiatives, tips, and tricks for a more sustainable and more mindful life along the way.
This event is hosted by Tzu Chi USA.

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.”
