Dear SIT4Change Participants and Supporters.
We would like to express many thanks for all those who participated in SIT4Change 2011. Our goal was to to demonstrate the connection between spirit, faith, transformation and achieving social justice goals. We have noted 13 sites nationally/ internationally of SIT4Change participation. We also know there were more that were not reported.
- Sydney, Australia
- San Francisco, CA
- Raleigh, NC
- Phoenix, AZ
- Orlando, FL
- New York City (2 locations)
- Miami, FL
- Detroit, MI
- Chicago, IL
- Boston, MA
- Oakland, CA
- Washington DC
- Toronto, Canada
- Denver, CO
We would like to extend our gratitude for everyone’s heartfelt participation. This was a success for us all!
One note is that SIT4Change was intended to be a self organized event in which people decided their own time and location. But, when we posted the information to MeetUp, in particular, we were limited to selecting a fixed time: 9am, rather than the range of 9a-9p which we were suggesting. This may have caused confusion for some and for that we apologize. We did provide information on our main website with instructions for self-organizing, but we realize some people did not make it there. This is the first time S4C was done in this context and we are learning, so thank you for the feedback!
The good news is that many folks are expressing that they would like to see a continuation of gatherings. We will poll people within the next week for frequency of times to meet and also look to connect folks to events already happening at local Occupy sites.

With our deepest regards,
