SIT4Change is an inter/national campaign that raises awareness about transformative social change: a “new” approach that recognizes the importance of personal development to achieve social transformation.

In the 4th Annual SIT4Change event held on November 12, 2011, we called for people to demonstrate the transformative power of practice at any of over 200 Occupy Wall Street events. CXC had a local SIT4Change at Occupy Oakland.  We knew that many occupy sites hold space for spiritual practices daily. What we  proposed was a call to action for a critical mass of spiritual, faith and transformation-based communities, groups and organizations to be invited to Occupy spaces everywhere, and that call was answered.

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.
