A Resource for Building Caring Communities.
Compassionate Capitol Region is a resource for building caring communities at the grassroots level in collaboration with city and county government in the six counties of Sacramento, Yolo, Sutter, Placer, El Dorado, Yuba and Nevada.
Compassionate Sacramento Resolution Passed
On July 25, 2017 Sacramento City Council passed the resolution drafted by Compassionate Capitol Region to affirm the city's membership in the Charter for Compassion. This aspirational designation is a call to action for our city to honor the good works being done, and to shape our policies as well as our hearts to live up to the vision of a compassionate city.
