PUBLIC SITS FOR RACIAL JUSTICE

HELD MONTHLY

"A settled body enables you to harmonize and connect with other bodies around you, while encouraging those bodies to settle as well. Gather together a large group of unsettled bodies - or assemble a group of bodies and then unsettle them - and you get a mob or a riot. But bring a large group of settled bodies together and you have a potential movement - and a potential force for tremendous good in the world."

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery, we began holding monthly public sits for racial justice in July 2020. By combining our practice of meditation with the principles of non-violent direct action, we hold these public sits in an outdoor, visible and public space in order to bring attention and awareness to the ongoing issues of racial justice. While we continue to meet in affinity groups to “do the work” in caucus, we come together monthly as a collective for the Public Sit.
