Parliament of the World’s Religions - Day 2

Day 2 was filled with fun things!


I (Felipe) was able to translate for a group of people from Mexico that came to show how they are changing the landscape in Santa Catarina, a city that previously was known for high crime rates, environmental and social issues. How are they changing it? By having the local government trained to put themselves in other’s shoes, and seeing how they can help satisfy the needs of underserved communities. They are an example of an incredible way to govern and care for those they lead, inspired by the Compassionate Cities program by the Charter for Compassion.

We attended the Banquet put on by the Charter for Compassion and that Susan, our own executive director, directed the planning and execution of it all. It was an inspiring evenings with encouraging talks on civility from minds worth admiring. All of the food was vegan and delicious, showing that we can show compassion to the animals of our Earth. Congratulations, Susan on a well planned and executed event for our partners at the Charter for Compassion!

Saturday we have our 1st workshop:

Compassionate Conversations that Includes Everyone: Based on the Golden Rule.
We are on at 2:15 pm in room 715A.
Hope you can join us!

Our booth has received so much love from so many people around the world. Our kindness chain keeps growing and looking healthy, and we’ve added more stories on how people live by the Golden Rule.

Here are some photos. You can check them out on our Facebook page as well, where you can download them and tag yourself if you are part of the ones that shared their story with us!

We’ll update you tomorrow with our daily Parliament of the World’s Religions post.


Thank you, thank you, thank you.

with love and gratitude,

- Felipe.
