The Church Council of Greater Seattle joins with Compassionate Seattle in inviting you to a Compassionate Communities Conference 8:30 am to 5 pm, Friday, March 14, at Saint Mark's Episcopal Cathedral, 1245 Tenth Ave. E., Seattle.
Seattle's first Regional Compassionate Communities Conference is dedicated to everyone in our community who is uncomfortable with the suffering of others and is ready to take action. Hear TED Prize winner Karen Armstrong speak on "Compassionate Cities are Uncomfortable Cities." She will share stories about people directly affected by inadequate access to food, shelter and clothing, quality education, protection from violence and the opportunity to earn a living wage; and to engage in dialogue around real needs, identify necessary solutions and make personal commitments to do something about them. Community leaders will facilitate open dialogue on current issues associated with Homelessness and Housing, At Risk Youth, Compassionate Education, Economic Justice and Alternative Economies.
Conference registration is $30 by March 12, $40 at the door, students $20. Lunch included. Fee reductions and scholarships available. Download a flyer here. Registration available at compassionateseattlehome.org.Subscribe
