CompassionateFW is a Reality

On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, the Fort Worth City Council, led by Mayor Betsy Price, unanimously passed a resolution affirming the "International Charter for Compassion" in the City of Fort Worth. The resolution was brought to the Council by Rabbi Andrew D. Bloom, Congregation Ahavath Sholom, who serves on the Mayor's Faith-Based Cabinet, the Steering Committee for this project, and acting representative for the Committee. The resolution was also endorsed by the City's Human Relations Commission, represented by Damon Blakely who also addressed the Council.

If you would like to see the meeting and hear the speeches of Rabbi Bloom and Damon Blakely, please click here. (Rabbi Bloom's address begins about 31 minutes into the video.)

Fort Worth is now part of the Charter for Compassion organization (charterforcompassion.org) and the Charter for Compassion is a document that transcends religious, ideological, and national differences. Supported by leading thinkers from many traditions, the Charter activates the Golden Rule around the world.

The Charter for Compassion is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religious, moral and political life. Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves in the shoes of the other, and lies at the heart of all religious and ethical systems.

The three principles that CompassionateFW will be centering their efforts on are: Unity, Volunteerism and Abundance. Many events are planned for the future. If you would like to be involved in this wonderful project, please contact Rabbi Bloom at 817-731-4721.
