COMBINING PUBLIC MOVEMENT AND ACTIONS OF LOVE
USING BEAUTY AND LISTENING AS THE TOOLS FOR CHANGE
We invite you to Choose Love Now by taking an action of compassion in the present moment.
Creating a small change of heart, that will ripple effect into the community.
Public Meditation + Human Connection + Random Acts of Kindness on the streets.
For the first time in history,
Humanity has access to knowledge and technology like never before. Despite the wealth of resources available there is a disconnect on how we use them to solve our problems.
Imagine if we could leverage the
power of human connection
to change the world one mind at a time.
The Parade for Love celebrates compassion in the present moment. Before we can engage in conversation to address today’s political, environmental, economical, and social issues, we must first remember we are all one species with one common goal.
YEAR ONE: 2015
YEAR TWO: 2017
love is like gravity for human connection:
A natural force that connects us, unseen but felt, as it pulls us together.
love is an action
First, we realize that we each individually have a choice, then we collectively work towards a more compassionate world by using the power in the present moment.
We use kindness
to open the heart before we open the mind
by gifting flowers on the streets, and
cultivating listening as a tool to
Turn Strangers into Neighbors
and have conversations that matter.
an active role in creating the future we want.
Amidst the national divide and epidemic of loneliness,
we each have the power to create a ripple effect of change.
About Choose Love Now Organization:
Choose Love Now launched it's first parade April 2015 where 200 participants paraded through the streets passing out flowers, cookies, and love notes while dressed in costume. Participants made new connections with anyone who crossed the parade’s path giving out flowers and sharing kind thoughts. After taking a year off, we came back to Union Square in April 2017 with over 7 partnership organizations to continue using kindness, beauty, music, and mindfulness as tools for change. Attendance grew to over 800 participants in over 4 hours. Stepping into the 3rd year of the NYC event, we will again create a vibration of love in public spaces and through the streets, with many communities all working towards unity, wellness, justice, and celebration.
