Compassionate Communities – October 15th, 2013

The convening was dedicated to cultivating interconnected communities to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls, Compassionate Communities Logomen and boys. Engaging and connecting with marginalized and oppressed communities is essential to widening the circle of compassion. In order to create compassionate communities, we think of the person or child who is valued the least, suffers the most, and comes in last, and we put that person, and others like them, at the center of our work. Compassionate Communities draws wisdom from science and diverse social justice movements, and cultivates compassion to create a future without violence.
