Compassionate Atlanta is a grassroots movement that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of compassionate action in the Greater Atlanta area. The Compassionate Atlanta Planning Team, which was formed in 2013, was instrumental in getting the City of Atlanta designated as a “Compassionate City.”
That important step was taken on February 3rd, 2014 by the City Council of Atlanta and approved by Mayor Kasim Reed on February 12th, 2014. In so doing, Atlanta became the second largest metropolitan area in the United States to become a Compassionate City.
