A Resource for Building Caring Communities.
Compassionate Capital Region is a resource for building caring communities at the grassroots level in collaboration with city and county government in the seven counties of Sacramento, Yolo, Sutter, Placer, El Dorado, Yuba and Nevada.
Working Together For All to Be Safe, Healthy, Creative and Prosperous.
We believe compassion is a collaborative effort to create communities that nurture these qualities of life on the premise that all our neighbors’ problems are ours to solve and evolve together. The Kwanzaa principle of Ujima states this perfectly as “collective works and responsibility; to build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems and to solve them together.” As a Compassionate City, Sacramento is in a prime position to be a great leader in this endeavor, paving the way towards universal prosperity.
Whether you’re newly interested in what this means or are a seasoned veteran in the way of leading with compassion, join us in stepping up our game to create a thriving, caring city.
In Appreciation to these Community Partners:
Compassionate Sacramento Resolution Passed
On July 25, 2017 Sacramento City Council passed the resolution drafted by Compassionate Capital 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 and our hearts to live up to the vision of a compassionate city.
About the International Campaign
We live in a city rich in natural and human resources. Over 5,000 non-profit organizations call our capitol region home. We live in the top producing agricultural state in country. Nearly 30% of our region's are young, college educated single adults (9% above national average) hope to build thriving careers and businesses in our city. These are three of many examples of the city’s strengths.
About Charter for Compassion
