As an international organization we interact with our community by utilizing an interactive Zoom platform which allows us to have a 1000 people on each video presentation. While we are registered as a non profit in the U.S.A. we have Charter for Compassion hubs in over 400 cities of the world. Our commitment is to bring our communities together to share and learn from one another. For World Interfaith Harmony week it is our intent that our compassionate communities meet in a designated place, participant in the calls, share a meal and then have a local discussion. Here are the offerings: February 1: The Golden Rule Day with Karen Armstrong, Krista Tippett and the Interfaith Amigos. February 2: Interfaith Leadership with Eboo Patel. February 3: Faces of Compassion with Roshi Joan Halifax and the viewing of two films of compassion in practice with the Buddhist Nuns and Monks and their work with the environment and a special presentation on expanding the circle of interfaith dialogue with awakening to compassion for animals. February 6: Sounds of Compassion with Nigel Westlake and Lior in an offering from the Compassion Symphony, first unveiled at the Sydney Opera House and a selection of songs from the Indian singer and humanitarian, Nimo, and ending with the Israeli-Palestinian duo, Noa and Mira Awad, and Emma's Revolution. February 7: Compassion Gives Us a Second Chance begins with Charlie Chaplin's recitation from the film, the Great Dictator, followed by a visual presentation of Carl Sagan's, The Blue Dot and ending with several songs by Holly Near and the Latin artists, Argentinian performers, Mercedes Sosa and Inti-Illimani. Learn more about the entire series. The World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform—one week in a year—when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are.
