Compassionate Atlanta is a grassroots community-building non-profit which seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action throughout the Greater Atlanta area. We do this by teaching and encouraging people of every persuasion and walk of life to channel their concern for the wellbeing of others into tangible action. The goal is to build healthier, more connected, abundant, and thriving communities.
We advance and shift the local and global culture by centering compassion with everyone we connect with and everything that we do.
We practice and model mindfulness with proven models such as Compassionate Integrity Training, anti-racism education, and through partnerships that support the development of compassion in children and youth.
We build networks with our charter partners through collaborations and community conversations to yield compassionate impact throughout our city.
We promote living compassionately in a diverse world through our advocacy and civic engagement as we address racial and economic justice issues locally.
We are dedicated to greater diversity and inclusion and provide equal opportunity to people of all races, ethnicities, cultures, religions, class, genders, sexual orientations, gender identifications/expressions, range of abilities, socio-economic background, educational status, ages, geographic locations, philosophies, and veteran statuses at all levels of staff and governance as well as within the communities we serve. We aim to lead by example with our own practices, encouraging our communities and partners to engage in diversity likewise as diversity and inclusion are the true expressions of compassion.
