Change the Story, Change the Future. This line, taken from a book title by David Korten, has become the operational motto of the Charter for Compassion. The individual who has lead the Charter in challenging our presence, capturing our stories and guiding our future has been Rev. Dr. Joan Campbell, the first chair of the Charter’s Board of Trustees. Rev. Joan’s living history is a testimony to how seemingly bleak and hurtful stories—in the middle of their telling—can be reversed to secure an ending that dignifies social justice and craves a pathway to peace.
The Charter for Compassion Board of Trustees has established a Rev. Dr. Joan Brown Campbell Campaign. While the future is hard to predict, we know that Rev. Joan has helped pave the way to solidify the mission of the Charter for Compassion’s future. The Campaign named for Joan will help sustain the Charter for Compassion’s mission to work with city initiatives around the world in years to come.
Your gift, at any level, will help the Charter’s commitment to change our future story to Dr. Joan’s story of “a compassionate world is a peaceful world in which every man, woman and child is treated with dignity, equity and respect.
