Location: Here is a map with our two primary locations.

Contingent: We will be marching with the Buddhist contingent, which is part of the faith communities contingent. The faith communities contingent will be at the front of Block #3 “We Rise for Democracy”, which is gathering at Embarcadero Plaza “stage left” (or if facing the stage head-on, to the right of it.)

→ 9:15 a.m. |  Interfaith service at Ferry Park

→ 11:00 a.m. | March with the interfaith community to Civic Center Plaza

→ 12:00pm | Resource fair and street mural painting (We expect we’ll be breaking the world record for the largest street mural! And the faith community will have our own mural.)

Members of the Midday Sangha invite the EBMC community to join us at the San Francisco RISE for Climate, Jobs, and Justice Mobilization.

We will carry the EBMC banner. Please bring your own message signs, if you can. We will offer masks that protect from smoke pollution as a symbolic message, should you choose to wear one. If you are not going to join the 8:30 AM meditation at Ferry Park, meet us at the West Oakland BART at 9:15 a.m. if you want to travel together. Or join us in San Francisco by 10:00 a.m. at the corner of Mission and Spear. We will then meet up with the EBMC community members who will have participated in the meditation. We’ll all meet at the southeast corner of the plaza in between the public bathroom and the half circle plaza stage with the greater faith community.
