Dear Friends,


I heard a talk by Ven. Karma Lekshe Tsomo yesterday. She passed out fliers for this Saturday's celebration. Many of you may know her or have seen her at peace and justice demonstrations. Ven. Karma Lekshe Tsomo is an American nun in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. I've pasted a little  bio below
In reference to this Sat, she said that City Heights  is recognized as the most culturally diverse neighborhood in America; and also the scene of much gang activity. This is part of an effort to honor and harmonize diversity. It reminds me of the Occupy Arts and Culture event last year. She isn't certain how much publicity has gotten out. She asks that people come, and help spread  the word./
