Compassionate Winston-Salem: Compassion for Animals Charter
The principle of compassion for animals calls society to treat animals as we wish to be treated ourselves. Compassion impels us to work tirelessly to alleviate the suffering of animals, and to become a voice without exception, with absolute justice, equity and respect, for those that cannot speak for themselves.We therefore call upon all people ~ to restore compassion to the center of communal life – to encourage a positive appreciation of animals ~ to cultivate an informed empathy with the suffering of animals. It is also necessary in both public and private life to refrain consistently and empathically from inflicting pain. To act or speak violently out of spite, to exploit or deny basic rights to animals, is a denial of our common humanity. We acknowledge that we have failed to live compassionately with animals. We urgently need to set an example by positively and thoughtfully leveraging local animal resources to celebrate and support all acts of compassion for animals. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, and ideological boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion for animals is essential for a fulfilled humanity.
