Love in Action Globally Our global focus remains expansion of the Healthy, Compassionate Birthing project. We collaborate with grassroots birth centers and projects in remote communities to share effective practices and educational interventions. Our common purpose: to dramatically reduce mamababy mortality and contribute to community wellbeing. Visit our website’s blog and Healthy, Compassionate Birthing Project page for updates (www.globalforceforhealing.org/project-one/).
Love in Action Locally Because we are committed to love in action wherever we are, we collaborate with the following groups in southern Oregon, our home base:
- Southern Oregon Birth Connections (www.SouthernOregonBirthConnections.com)
- Ashland Culture of Peace Commission (www.ashlandcpc.org)
- Compassionate Communities—We are working toward Ashland declaring itself a “compassionate community” and formally joining the Charter for Compassion International movement (http://www.charterforcompassion.org/index.php/communities). We are officially launching our local Compassion Project with The Compassion Tour Sept. 26-Oct. 17 in Ashland! For more information: www.ashlandcpc.org/compassiontourashland.
Global Plus Local = “Glocal” Global Force for Healing exists to contribute wherever we are to expanding love and compassion in daily life. The distinction between “global” and “local” seems arbitrary in our interconnected world. Therefore, we are a “glocal” organization, applying what we learn to various contexts, in partnership with groups with aligned values and purpose.
