Join the EBMC Contingent: Oakland Women’s March, Jan. 21, 2017

People of all genders, you are invited to join in building beloved community. Join our East Bay Meditation Center Sangha to practice moving-together-in-community meditation at the Oakland Women’s March on Saturday, January 21.  People across the gender spectrum and folks using wheelchairs and scooters are welcome. We are moving together in community to heal from the violence, hatred and fear that pervades our current political arena. We are participating in this event to build and nourish beloved community by cultivating compassion and understanding for ourselves, our country, and our world.

We will gather around our #EBMC banner near the corner of 8th and Jackson at Madison Park at 10 am.  The march begins at 11 am and ends at Oscar Grant Plaza at 12:30 pm, then the rally begins.

Bring your own signs (optional), hearty snacks and water.  See links below for more info.  Questions?  Contact Joan at
