Invitation from Inter-Sangha Non-violent Direct Action Group
As predicted by many, we moved through Wednesday facing significant uncertainty about the election outcome. Even today, many mail-in ballots are left to be counted, including in states with very tight races. We hope to have some sense of final outcome today, although proceedings may extend much longer, especially if there are legal challenges.
As of now, it appears that all states are moving forward with ballot counting as we would expect and hope to see. Of course, if the situation in states changes, we’ll want to be ready to respond quickly.
On Saturday, 11/7, at 12pm a large cross-section of organizations will be assembling to advocate for all votes to be counted and the outcome to be respected. For now, our Inter-Sangha group intends to be represented at this event, and invite any and all of you to join us to stand in solidarity and in non-violent direct action with our community. We will have a large banner, reading “Buddhists for Racial Justice and Compassionate Action” and representatives available for you to connect with to make sure you can find us. See below for more details:
– When? Saturday, 11/7, at 12pm
– Where? 3000 Minnehaha Ave., Minneapolis (outside the old 3rd Precinct building)
– Who? The Inter-Sangha Non-Violent Direct Action group will be assembling and available for you to find. If you are having difficulty finding the group please contact:
– Ben Connelly (612-821-8736)
– Alex Meyers (816-813-6886)
– What? We’ll be supporting this action coordinated by many different groups. Our focus for now is on ensuring all ballots are counted and that the result of the vote is respected.
We will post another blog post here Saturday morning to confirm our intentions. Please reach out if you have advance questions.
In peace and solidarity,
The Inter-sangha Non-violent Direct Action Group
