Center for Urban Peace's 1st Annual Sit-A-Thon
"Take a Stand,
SIT For Change"

Sunday, September 21st, Noon to 5pm
Registration Opens: 11am

"Like King and Gandhi, Suu Kyi and Mandela, Black Elk and Chávez, when
our action is rooted in presence, the moment-to-moment skill and grace
that comes from being self-aware and connected to purpose, that force of
deep inner-knowing guides our every step."

Activists, Meditators, Yogis, Agents of Change: Take a Stand

Held on the International Day of Peace and Fall Equinox,
SIT For Change
is a celebration and affirmation of the power of Transformative Change:
when work for a more just, equitable and sustainable society is
championed by individuals and organizations that cultivate compassion
and presence as much as they do strategies and campaigns, potential for
real transformation -- both personal and social -- begins.

SIT For Change

Sitting is action! Beginning at EXACTLY noon with a minute of Silence
for Peace shared worldwide, five sessions of group sitting, walking, moving
meditation and yoga are alternated with live music, inspiring messages
and spoken word.

3 Simple Ways to Take A Stand

To register visit our website at

Registration is recommended, but not required.

1. PARTICIPATE: Register as a participant. Commit to sit for one session or
all five. Ask your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to support your
commitment with a pledge.

2. PLEDGE: You don't have to participate to support transformative change.
Register to make your pledge in solidarity with participants and/or invite
others to make a pledge. No amount is too large or too small.

3. SIT: Grab your cushion or blanket and
SIT For Change. ALL are welcome
to enjoy an inspiring day of group meditation, yoga, music, and spoken word.

SIT For Change is a Global Mala Event. Proceeds of SIT For Change
benefit the
Transformative Change Fund. The fund supports activists in
cultivating their inner lives to become more effective agents of
transformative change.

Peace begins HERE.

Take a Stand,
SIT For Change

All are welcome. No one turned away for lack of funds.

For Change is Wheelchair Accessible.
