City of Lake Forest Park re-affirms commitment to Charter for Compassion

Thursday, January 26, 2017

In October of 2012, the Lake Forest Park City Council adopted the Charter for Compassion.
We noted that a compassionate city promotes values of justice, equity, and respect for all peoples. 
We acknowledged our role and responsibility to make compassion a clear and dynamic force in our city; affirmed that a compassionate city deepens our quality of life; and encouraged our citizens to embrace compassionate action in caring for its neighbors.

Lake Forest Park is one of 70 cities worldwide to adopt the Charter for Compassion, and was one of the first in King County.

Last August, the Mayor, with Council concurrence, proclaimed August 11 “Compassion Day in Lake Forest Park”.

In the wake of the political rhetoric generated during the Presidential Campaign members of the Lake Forest Park City Council were concerned about their community.

On December 8, 2016, the Lake Forest Park City Council passed a resolution reaffirming their commitment to the values of the Charter for Compassion and participation in the Ten-Year Campaign for Compassion.

We abhor hate speech and attacks against our neighbors, especially ethnic and religious groups. Every department within the city is committed to the Charter of Compassion and the fair and equal treatment of all people.
