Partner with Compassion Fayetteville

“Compassion is not an option. It’s the key to our survival.” -Karen Armstrong

Compassion Fayetteville, facilitated by Dian Williams, is an initiative developed from Mayor Lioneld Jordan’s Fayetteville Forward Economic Accountability Council. Twenty volunteers have coordinated their time and talent to bring the project to all citizens of this region.

Mayor Lionel Jordan issued a proclamation January 18, 2014, declaring support for the Compassion Fayetteville initiative. The initiative grew from the guidance of the International Campaign for Compassionate Cities supporting Karen Armstrong, a religious scholar and author, who created the Charter for Compassion. The proclamation achieved a major goal: Fayetteville joined 100+ cities around the world who earned this title.

We invite you to join us achieve our goal to collaborate, connect, and communicate compassionate actions together with area citizens and to date over 100+ business partners and over 150+ individual partners. Share with us your ideas, stories, and resources; learn from others and share your lessons learned.

Our request for your partnership is simple. All we ask is that if you agree with the Vision, Mission, and Core Values of Compassion Fayetteville, sign up as a partner to support efforts to build on our Compassionate City designation. We also ask partners to share information about our activities among your membership as you think appropriate.
