Hello friends and future friends of the Charter!

At this time I announce that the Charter for Compassion is involved in a very unique NFT, one that combines a digital art piece by artist Nayla and a real house in the mountains of Utah. A percentage of the sale would be donated to the Charter for Compassion which could become a game changer for organizational funding and as such for the compassion movement around the world!

With warmest regards,




How to become an Activist for our World

Introducing the Work that Reconnects

How do we live in our damaged world, without closing our eyes, or losing hope? How do we not only express our suffering to each other, but also our gratitude for the beauties of nature and our world? How can we open our eyes and heart, connect with others, human and non-human and see our world anew? And how can we move forward, and be active in protecting our planet, our home?

Don't miss this important course.

Starts January 31 Cost: $30

Next Month's Global Read: The future is dark. But is this the darkness of the tomb ‚Äď or the darkness of the womb?

How do we labor for the world we want when the labor feels endless? Valarie Kaur ‚Äď renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer ‚Äď declares that revolutionary love is the call of our time, a radical, joyful practice that extends in three directions: to others, to our opponents, and to ourselves. It enjoins us to see no stranger but instead look at others and say: You are a part of me I do not yet know. Starting from that place of wonder, the world begins to change: It is a practice that can transform a relationship, a community, a culture, even a nation.

Consider a volunteer opportunity with the Charter for Compassion! We are looking to grow much of what we are already doing and exploring new opportunities that match our mission. Let's see if we're a good fit! Please take our survey.


Go to our TAKE ACTION page to find a variety of ways in which to interact with the Charter and some of our key strategic partners. The Charter for Compassion is essentially a movement with many different players; individuals, compassionate cities, partner organizations and coalitions of other organizations all coming together as one network. 

As a non-profit, the Charter relies on the generosity of its members and communities to continue to meet our mission of making compassion a clear, luminous, and dynamic force in our polarized world. Help us share our vision and work with your family, colleagues, neighbors, and organizations in which you are involved.  Host a Charter Salon with friends and family, at home, with your faith community, or colleagues from work. We have everything you need: invitations, links to films, brochures, PowerPoints if you prefer, and even talking points.
Contact Us and we’ll get back to you, follow up with an e-mail, call or Zoom meeting. We rely on people who believe in our mission to help touch the lives of those in local communities and across the world.



The Charter for Compassion has a bold, audacious vision of co-creating a world that works for everyone. Please support the Charter with a monthly contribution that helps to build this global compassionate community - person by person, school by school, and city by city. Thank you!
