“The principle of compassion lies at the heart of all religious, ethical and spiritual traditions, calling us always to treat all others as we wish to be treated ourselves. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of our fellow creatures, to dethrone ourselves from the centre of our world and put another there, and to honour the inviolable sanctity of every single human being, treating everybody, without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect.”
Extinction Witness partners with CHARTER FOR COMPASSION toward bridging false divides for peaceful conflict resolution. We encourage affirmations of The Charter and amplify the voices and work of those reviving compassionate lifeways.
Radical Joy for Hard Times is a global network of people who believe that making beauty is active resistance to fear-based domination of individuals, species, and communities. Here, a refusal to be identified by and identify solely with woundedness. Here a commitment to own the power of innate, radical joy despite what harms have occurred and/or are occurring. Extinction Witness works with Radical Joy for Hard Times to help promote and encourage participation in Rad Joy’s annual Global Earth Exchange. Radical Joy for Hard Times is also a Generative Memorials partner.
