Please join us as we Sit for $15! On April 15th 2015, low-wage workers in over 200 cities worldwide will go on strike, demanding a living wage and the right to unionize. Their movement — the Fight for $15 — is now asking for a coalition of spiritual progressives to come out to support them and their important work.
All are welcome to join in a peaceful early morning Meditation Occupation at a fast food restaurant, in solidarity with low wage workers on strike there, to express our common values — love, justice, and interdependence. This action is coordinated by IDP’s Sit Down, Rise Up initiative.
Where: meet at Brooklyn Zen Center, 505 Carroll St #2A
When: April 15th, 2015
4:15am – morning sitting and walking period at BZC
5:30am – walking meditation to fast food restaurant
