Our transparent vision is to influence others to affirm the Charter for Compassion and, through word and action, help grow and nurture sustainable cultures of compassion locally, nationally, and globally.
Compassionate St. Augustine is a grassroots organization in St. Augustine, Florida run by those who engage with the Charter for Compassion and partake in efforts to embody the Golden Rule. On September 9, 2013, we became the first Compassionate City in Florida and the fortieth in the world. In August of 2014, St. Augustine, Florida and Aviles, Spain became the first Compassionate Sister Cities in the world. We remain in partnership with this vibrant city through shared initiatives that provide the common goal of living by the Charter for Compassion. In efforts to nurture and grow a culture of compassionate progress in this world, we wholeheartedly welcome all— of any ability, age, class, ethnicity, faith, gender, race, or sexual orientation—to join us.
