COMPASSIONATE SAN ANTONIO . .

. . . is a grassroots movement to have San Antonio, Texas recognized as a world-class compassionate city: one where the civic government, the religious and volunteer organizations, the businesses, the community and its educational institutions come together to recognize the importance and value of compassion in the life of a city and by doing so create an ethos of compassion and a safety net for its most vulnerable citizens.

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.

A CALL TO THE STEPS

On July 21, 2016 Compassionate San Antonio brought the Charter for Compassion to the City Hall Steps. Over the past three years thousands of San Antonians at hundreds of events, big and small, have signed our big vinyl charter for Compassion banners, which were presented to City Council at the end of the day.
