#WiserDemocracy entails replacing our 2 party system (which silences most citizens) with representatives who are held accountable to ALL voices (e.g., Voice of the People's Citizen Cabinets). This empowers the collective wisdom and compassion of ALL, which maximizes #Sustainable #EquityForAll.
We believe that educating and rallying 30 million of those supporters is critical mass to replace crony capitalism with a #WiserDemocracy (which will expedite the path to a #CaringCulture and a #CaringEconomy).
Most of those 30 million are already identified with 3 movement hubs:
Revolutionary Love (50+ orgs).
Catalyzing a #CaringCulture
Bridge Alliance (90+ orgs).
Empowering a #WiserDemocracy.
New Economy Coalition (210+orgs).
Co-creating a #CaringEconomy.
We envision uniting those movements, with the help of 30,000 civic/faith leaders; 10,000 #OneAmerica Meetups; and with significant funding from Compassionate Realtors (via Connection Realty).
Co-created by #CompassionateCitizens
We seek to catalyze the #CompassionateCommunities campaign at Charter for Compassion by engaging #CompassionateCitizens (#OneAmerica Meetup members) in respectful dialogue across diversity, in order to maximize the well being of the worst off. While this entails reducing suffering (e.g., from Hunger, Homelessness, Hopelessness, Hate and/or Health issues), our focus is on SYSTEMS change.
We are effectively linking 3 macro-movements, with myriad sub-movements:
1. #CaringCulture -- Culturally empowering citizens, by educating them about Asset Based Community Development. ABCD unleashes the unique assets and gifts of citizens, to co-create #CompassionateCommunities.
2. #WiserDemocracy -- Politically empowering citizens, by educating them about the Deliberative Democracy movement, to hold all levels of government accountable to the collective wisdom and compassion of their constituents.
3. #CaringEconomy -- Economically empowering citizens, by educating them about the Triple Bottom Line, where consumers, workers and investors reflect their integrated values, as regards People, Planet and Profits (#Sustainable #EquityForALL).
In April, 2016, we created a pilot Meetup group, #CompassionateCitizens Fox Valley, to serve as a template for transpartisan Meetups:
In April, 2019, with the support of the Foundation For Religious Diplomacy, we will launch 6+ pilot #OneAmerica Meetups across Kane and Dupage Counties.
We are currently seeking faith and civic leaders to serve as co-organizers.
To fund the #CompassionateCitizens movement, Connection Realty will pair #CompassionateCitizens who are buying or selling a home with Compassionate Realtors who compete for value, while generously supporting the movement.
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.
