Event Details

Join Compassion NYC and Buddhist Global Relief on our second Rolling Retreat to Washington, D.C.  This time, we roll for justice–racial justice.  The march will bring attention to the injustices around policing, racism in the criminal justice system, separate and unequal education, economic and political disenfranchisement, redlining, gerrymandering and more.  The march also calls on us to speak out against attacks on civil rights protections for those in the LGBTQ community, the normalization of rape culture, misogyny and unequal pay for equal work, continued theft and desecration of Native lands, environmental exploitation, the results of which greatly affect communities of color.  We march against all forms of victimization and dehumanization perpetuated by white supremacy and racism.
