Resilience High Point has created a “Compassion Charter” to motivate individuals, businesses, organizations, and cultural institutions to act in ways that begin a healing process towards neighborliness and compassionate behaviors.
Resilience High Point desires a ‘Compassionate Community’ whose members, in all their forms, are motivated to act when they are confronted with the reality that there are people in their midst who are, and have been, suffering. The Charter is the first step in a movement to create a City where compassion lives and thrives, where people look out for each other, where people collaborate on addressing community problems and issues, and where people celebrate what we have created and what we are going to create together.
