It’s disturbing to the core.
Young elementary school students are being forced to participate in Buddhist-based meditation in public schools.
We’re being contacted by numerous parents of elementary school students from over a dozen states. Some students are required to participate in as many as three meditation sessions each school day. If they refuse, kids are forced to sit outside the classroom, like a punishment.

We're launching a multifaceted legal campaign including representing parents of these students, sending demand letters, state FOIA requests, and if necessary, litigation. Take action with us.
