We are imperfect people in an imperfect world who maintain open hearts & minds. What is our work? We focus on problem-solving for human beings & strive to provide hope that good work is happening. Our backgrounds are mixed, which helps us engage with a vast landscape of diverse reform efforts. We came to this work with various connections to the reform field, but we joined hands as Compassionate America and asked, “How can we help?” Individuals have their own political & religious views, but we strive together to realize an America that works for We the People. By uplifting our fellow Americans & amplifying civic and pro-democracy reforms that encompass service to family, community, and country, we affirm that which helps Americans live better lives, today.
In our work, Compassionate America seeks to honor and educate itself about American diversity.
Compassionate America acknowledges that the United States of America resides on historic and contemporary indigenous lands and the traditions and peoples who first walked them.
Founded in 2019, Compassionate America is a group of average people who have united to say “enough!” We engage in non-partisan civic-reform and civic-service initiatives that partner with and amplify pro-democracy reform work, nationally. Our aim is to raise public awareness about the pro-democracy movement and help reform American political culture beyond the major two parties’ stranglehold over the American narrative, so as to counter the duopoly’s negative impacts on We the People’s systems of self-governing.
What We Do:
As an all-volunteer organization, we regularly meet to develop strategies in support of the nation’s pro-democracy movements. Through our YouTube network, we produce and share mission-aligned content to independent-minded Americans, regardless of partisan affiliation. We also are active in political-culture reform through our Declaration of Mission Candidate Challenge, Complaint for Declaratory Relief 50-State Strategy, and partner organization for civic-education, the Collaborative for Compassionate Civic Engagement.

WE THE PEOPLE is all of us, and WE are the AUTHORITY and POWER behind our self-governance.
