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!
