Build Compassionate Communities

Cultural Recognition

Education and Awareness

Does our community:

  • Have programs to recognize our diversity and celebrate our differences? 
  • Make use of public art to celebrate differences as well as our common humanity? 
  • Promote programs and services that help people of the community get to know each other and learn about each other’s cultural background(s)? 
  • Provide forums for discussion of cultural differences, literary works, art traditions etc. that would enhance understanding and acceptance? 

United Nations Sustainability Goals:

  • Achieve gender equality, social inclusion, and human rights for all.
  • Empower inclusive, productive, and resilient cities.
  • Transform governance and technologies for sustainable development.

“The World We Want 2015” Priorities:

  • Equality Between Men and Women
  • Political Freedoms
  • Freedom from Discrimination and Persecution

Compassion and Outreach

Does our community:

  • Recognize and celebrate diverse faiths as we consider how to live with compassion? 
  • Remove barriers to participation in the community by providing translations for people who do not speak the native language well? 
  • Reach out compassionately to immigrant groups (and any new neighbors) to welcome them and help them adjust to a new environment? 
  • Reach out to other communities—in the region, the nation, or the world—to celebrate multiculturalism, offer trainings, and focus on compassion for all beings?
