Description: Compassion Fayetteville is an initiative developed from the Fayetteville Forward Economic Accountability Council’s (FFEAC) Inclusion Group. We are a cooperative effort by a group of citizens who volunteer their time to increase awareness, encourage and promote a culture of compassion through identifying, supporting and initiating new compassionate actions in Fayetteville.
We are one of 62 cities around the world to earn designation as a Compassionate City by the International Campaign for Compassionate Communities, a worldwide network founded and inspired by the Charter for Compassion, a document that transcends religious, ideological, and cultural differences. All individuals, groups and organizations are welcome to participate.
Compassion Fayetteville hosts and participates in several compassionate events, such as the Compassion Games and Relays and Dialog Dinners. These events and many more can be found on Compassion Fayetteville's monthly compassion calendar at: https://compassionfayetteville.wordpress.com/calendar/
