Peace on the Street is a zendo in East Harlem whose mission is to bring dharma practice to the inner city. Their unconventional techniques were covered in a profile by Joan Duncan Oliver in the Winter 2008 issue of Tricycle.
Tricycle has been a friend of the organization for years and we recently collaborated on a video shot by CloudLine Films that will give you a sense of what Peace on the Street does and the tremendous value they add to East Harlem, New York City, and alternative youth education as a whole. Like Tricycle, they are also a not-for-profit—read more about them and support their work here.
Thank you to Richard Garcia Sensei and the Peace on the Street kids for agreeing to participate in this video!
Thank you for subscribing to Tricycle! As a nonprofit, we depend on readers like you to keep Buddhist teachings and practices widely available.
