Compassion around Atlanta

I remember exactly where I was on the morning of September 11, 2001.  I’m guessing that you remember where you were, too. I had no idea how the day would impact my life and my work. It still serves as a constant reminder of our interconnectedness. 15 years later and we are still struggling with how to embrace others who are not like us. Hopeless? No. Today, I focus on the amazing and hopeful things that have happened since then. Too many to count. The compassion I see each day and the will to make our communities safer and more accepting are abundant.

I invite you, as we remember those lives lost then and now, to host a conversation around compassion. Contact us at to learn more.

Keep moving forward. Read the events below. Get involved. Be part of the movement for compassion and positive change.

Leanne Rubenstein, Executive Director of Compassionate Atlanta
