About Us
Compassionate Atlanta is a grassroots movement that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action throughout the Greater Atlanta area.

The Compassionate Atlanta Planning Team was instrumental in getting the City of Atlanta designated a “Compassionate City” by the City Council and approved by Mayor Kasim Reed in February, 2014, making Atlanta the second-largest metropolitan area in the United States to do so.

Charter for Compassion founder on “Compassionate Cities”

“A compassionate city is an uncomfortable city! A city that is uncomfortable when anyone is homeless or hungry. Uncomfortable if every child isn’t loved and given rich opportunities to grow and thrive. Uncomfortable when any group anywhere in the world is marginalized or oppressed. Uncomfortable when as a community we don't treat our neighbors as we would wish to be treated.”
