On July 1, 2013, IPSC voted to sign the Charter for Compassion.  We have adopted a theme of compassion for our events in the coming year.  Visit here to learn about activities as they are added to the calendar.  What is the Charter for Compassion?  The best idea humanity has ever had …
The Charter for Compassion is a document that transcends religious, ideological, and national differences. Supported by leading thinkers from many traditions, the Charter activates the Golden Rule around the world.
The Charter for Compassion is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religious, moral and political life. Compassion is the principled determination to put ourselves in the shoes of the other, and lies at the heart of all religious and ethical systems.
“Compassion is not an option. It’s the key to our survival.” -Karen Armstrong
