May Day Walking Meditation
Shemanski Park

Buddhist Peace Fellowship of Portland offers a walking meditation led by Rev. Jayna Gieber, Meditation Teacher in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. The group will circle Shemanski Park during the hour before the May Day Rally begins. We will leave peaceful footprints all around the park as we rise up, resist, unite. Set intentions for a day bending toward justice, a day of solidarity with immigrants, Muslims, people of color, LGBTQI, unhoused people, and all who are threatened by the rule of a war-mongering billionaire class. May all beings be safe.

Standing Together for Justice (Buddhist Peace Fellowship, Portland)
Lownsdale Square

Join us as we meet at the foot of the towering war memorial in Lownsdale Square during the hour before the rallies of June 4. If the weather is dry, we can sit; if it rains we will stand.

We will be meditating on the dissolution of white supremacy, on safety for all who are targets of hatred, and on safety for all who stand with those who are targeted or threatened.

At 12:30 all meditators may either continue meditating in place or may join any of several rallies being held in the area. We will meditate with our eyes open, aware of what surrounds us, mindfully inviting peace.

Holiday Singing for Immigrants at the ICE Detention Center with Buddhist Peace Fellowship
Portland ICE Detention Center, 4310 SW Macadam

Here's a new reason to go singing at mid-day on Christmas Eve. ICE wrecks the holiday and breaks up families by detaining immigrants at the ICE office on SW Macadam before sending them to detention facilities at NORCOR or Tacoma. As a statement of solidarity, join us on Christmas Eve day at noon, at the Southwest corner of the ICE building. Bring signs supporting immigrants.

We invite people of all faiths, no faith, and agnostics to join us as we sing Feliz Navidad, Jingle Bells, Cielito Lindo, and other songs. Alternative lyrics will be available for singing to some melodies that may be familiar. If you're not into singing, come listen and stand in silent vigil, with respect for the suffering caused by US immigration policies.
