Description

Buddhist Peace Fellowship and Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice invite all concerned about the criminalization of immigration to join in a monthly walk of compassion and solidarity. Our walk emulates the migration of peoples, and bears witness to the daily suffering of immigrants and their families.

Mindful walks occur every 2nd Thursday of the month at the ICE processing center at SW Macadam and Bancroft. Participants need not be Buddhists or member of any faith. Instruction in the practice of opening our hearts to transform suffering through peace-walking meditation will be given at the start of each event.

May our united action share burdens, cast light, and transform this time we live.

Mark your calendars. The first event is July 13. Subsequent events will be August 10 and September 14.
