as the First “Compassionate” State in the Nation!
The Cities of Fremont and San Francisco, and Santa Clara County, and others have broken ground, with still more in the works.
Our mission is to join Cities
and Counties of Compassion (we’ve got to
work on that one!) of the greater Bay Area, to
envision our communities as we would have them be, and
work together to create a Compassionate Bay Area.
(BTW, the nine official
counties of the Bay Area consist of Alameda, Contra
Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa
Clara, Solano and Sonoma. Among these nine counties
are 101 cities, an estimated 7.756 million people and
about 7,000 square miles.)
Join us for our virtual Compassionate Bay
Area CyberCafé via Zoom, Second Monday mornings at
10:30. If you wish to join us, please email us at
and we will send you the link.
Also, zoomeeting every 2nd Tuesday
morning at 10:00 is Compassionate California
I challenge you to affirm that this is a Beloved Community in which we live by starting a campaign to make your town or city a Compassionate City.
The above are simple, modest
points of action. Here are two links to the Charter For Compassion folks:
The Compassionate Community: https://charterforcompassion.org/communitiesWe do not intend to re-invent the wheel. Here are several websites of folks already doing the heavy lifting:
More to come. For instance, I’d like to post minutes of our Monday meetings. We’ll see how that goes.
