Compassion in Action was founded to inspire compassion among middle school aged girls using humane education. Through our events and workshops, girls develop the skills to be passionate, effective advocates for themselves, each other, and our planet.
What is Humane Education?
“Humane education is a lens, body of knowledge, and set of tools and strategies for teaching about human rights, animal protection, environmental stewardship, and cultural issues as interconnected and integral dimensions of a just, healthy society.
Humane education not only instills the desire and capacity to live with compassion, integrity, and wisdom, but also provides the knowledge and tools to put our values into action in meaningful, far-reaching ways so that we can find solutions that work for all.” www.humaneeducation.org
