Sunday, October 17, 2021
The afternoon of Sunday, October 17, 2021, 120 people of diverse faiths, including those who are spiritual but not religious, assembled along the Mahicantuck (Hudson River) to raise their collective voice for climate justice as they walk across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
"We are walking across the Mahicantuck in awareness of our moral obligation to act now to mitigate the impacts of climate change and to preserve life by protecting our natural world and its resources."
- Marjorie ChoGaku McCoy (Village Zendo)
"We want those at COP26 to understand that destroying our planet, burdening those least responsible with loss of homeland and loss of life, and squelching the hopes, dreams and prospects of future generations go against our most deeply held moral and spiritual precepts."
- John Seakwood (Tendai Buddhist Institute)
April 26, 2021 - twenty-nine engaged activists assembled in solidarity for the organizational meeting of the Buddhist Action Coalition in the Upper Hudson and Berkshires.
