Natural Awakenings Atlanta

Compassionate Cities Launches in Atlanta

Partnering with the Faiths Against Hate initiative of the Council for a Parliament of the World’s Religions, three Atlanta interfaith organizations; Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta, Interfaith Community Initiatives and Neshama Interfaith Center, are collaborating to invite selected cities in metro Atlanta to embrace the Charter for Compassion and declare that they are “compassionate cities”.

Once a city government signs on to the Charter for Compassion, citizens will partner with government officials to develop their city’s Plan for Compassionate Action. A metro Atlanta gathering (World Cafe format) will explore questions such as: If metro Atlanta was a more compassionate ring of cities, what would change? What would change if compassionate action was to become a commonly used term in our personal and public discourse? from 2 to 5 p.m., February, 2, at the Carter Center.

Participants will be invited to take action over the next two months to generate engagement and support for the initiative.
