Get Involved with Compassion NYC for a Better NYC

There are many ways you can get involved in making New York a more compassionate, caring community. We’re about more than ‘volunteering.’  We’re about bringing Buddhist ethics of kindness and compassion to every moment, every action.  So, whether you’d like to join us serving food in a soup kitchen, at a protest for social justice, or even participating in one of our annual events, there’s something for you.  Below are just some of the ways you can be a part of bringing more compassion to NYC:
