The Upland council adopted a resolution Monday, 28th of March 2022, stating it will promote and build “healthy, equitable, and resilient communities” and empower children and families to be part of a more compassionate society.

“The City of Upland is a Compassionate Community that aspires to be compassionate and encourage community service to meet the needs of our families, friends, communities, and neighbors,” begins the first section of the resolution.

Upland has developed a “catch them doing something compassionate” program that awards ordinary residents, nonprofit groups, businesses and visitors with certificates for acts of kindness.

The criteria includes: alleviating the suffering of others; honoring the inviolable sanctity of every human being; encouraging positive appreciation and respect of cultural, ethnic and religious diversity; promoting empathy with others; promoting and practicing environmental sustainability; being kind.
