We envision 30 million Empowered #CompassionateCitizens in the U.S. by Election Day, 2020.
We believe that educating and rallying 30 million of those supporters is critical mass to replace crony capitalism with a wiser democracy (which will expedite the path to a caring culture and economy).
Most of those 30 million are already identified with 3 movement hubs:
Revolutionary Love (50+ orgs).
Catalyzing a culture of compassion
Bridge Alliance (80+ orgs).
Empowering a wiser democracy
New Economy Coalition (200+orgs).
Co-creating a caring economy.
We envision uniting those movements, with the help of 30,000 civic/faith leaders; 10,000 #CompassionateCitizens Meetups; and with signficant funding from Compassionate Realtors.
We support the Compassionate Communities campaign at Charter for Compassion by engaging #CompassionateCitizens (Meetup members) in respectful dialogue across diversity, in order to:
In April, 2016, we created a pilot Meetup group, #CompassionateCitizens Fox Valley, to serve as a template for transpartisan Meetups:
We also enthusiastically support a deeply mission aligned organization, which is creating and supporting transpartisan Meetups:
To fund the #CompassionateCitizens movement, Connection Realty will pair #CompassionateCitizens who are buying or selling a home with Compassionate Realtors who generously support our work, and the work of our mission aligned partners.
We are partnering with organizations and recruiting volunteer civic and faith leaders across the U.S., to help us unite "silos of compassion", and empower dialogue across diversity.
We encourage all to join or form a transpartisan Meetup sponsored by Crossing Party Lines.
If you are buying or selling home anywhere in the U.S., go to Connection-Realty.com to find a Compassionate Realtor who supports the movement.
Whether you participate in respectful dialogue-across-diversity, volunteer your talents, or promote the movement through word of mouth or on social media, we thank you for doing your part to build a community, and a world, that works for all.
We are in the process of re-organizing. Our new board will be populated by diverse, local, engaged leaders from mission aligned organizations, initially in Chicago (creating an implicit collective impact initiative, free of the organizational inertia that inhibits deep collaboration).
