Hi - I am writing to ask for your support in creating a compassionate world. When I started the Compassionate Action Network I was hoping that social networks could be part of how we activate the will and find a way to make just and lasting change. I am grateful that you joined this network and I sincerely hope that it has made some difference in your life and your community.
It was the action part of compassionate action that got my attention. So now I invite you to be part of taking another step forward together. I ask that you take two minutes to join the 10 Year Campaign for Compassionate Cities if you haven’t already.
We need 1,000 people to join by March 15 to have the Mayor and City Council follow through on their end. If you personally join the campaign and share or send this on to others we will take a big collective step forward in building our capacity to make change happen. This is not just another petition, what you do will make a difference. You can learn more about this here
You don’t need to be a Seattle resident to join this campaign, and this idea is spreading. Campaigns have started or are starting in Vancouver, BC, Bellingham, Bellevue, Issaquah, Spokane, Portland, San Francisco, and London.
If there ever was a time to stand together and affirm that what each of us does and does not do makes a difference it is now. I ask that you find the time to add your name to the growing list of people awakening compassion in our cities and our world. Join here now
Hi Janice -- we would like to support the work you and Riane are doing. CAN is holding a big open space event at Seattle Center on 10/17. I ask you to consider being there to promote what you are doing and to connect with others. Let me know if you want more information. Please accept my "friend request" as well!
Hi -- I wanted to let you know that we were so impressed and humbled by our time with Riane. I talked with Riane about Tova and I getting trained and building a bridge to the work we've been doing with Interra and the Center for Partnership Studies. Why don't you invite Riane into the site? As "action research" I think she'll appreciate what's unfolding here. Please contact us about getting more involved.
