There will be a sign and banner making party on Sept. 15 for the upcoming Global Climate Strike in Portland (for more information about the Climate Strike, please see below).

We'll get started at 12:30 at PIMC, after the Dharma Talk. In addition to making signs, we'll also have fun creating a poignant mantra … so we can stay mindful throughout the march!
