Consider Organizing Your Own Congress

Are Mondays or Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. not a good time for you? Consider serving on the Empathy Surplus Project board as an emissary from the Wilmington, Ohio, congress, and starting your own. We can help.

Now is the time -- when Americans and their elected local and state representatives need to be talking to one another about how to build an empathy surplus strong enough to protect and empower each other. The topic is our American moral mission. 

Join other caring citizens on a regular basis to build trust for effective government. We are a neighborhood think-and-do community of practice. We are dedicated to use the latest insights of the brain to frame a caring American story of effective government in our personal spheres of influence.

There's a lot of information on this website. You can spend time here. Or you can spend time with us as our guest at a Caring Citizens' Congress gathering. We are encouraging caring citizens of any political party who believe empathy and responsibility for self and others are core governing principles to join us. Spend a few weeks with one of our congresses to see if we're right for you.

Caring Policy Directions

We have two policy directions that we are working on:

  1. Healthcare as a human right, and 
  2. A caring society deserves a caring economy filled with ethical business.

Perhaps you have other policy directions you're passionate about. Be our guest and see how to initiate action on your policy direction.

We are especially focused on caring business men and women and caring faith community members - we recruited Christ Episcopal Church, Dayton, Ohio, as the first faith community to join the UNGC. Each Caring Citizens' Congress has a representative who sits on the ESP board. It takes nine affiliated and duly chartered congresses to fill the ESP board. 

Healthcare Human Rights

If healthcare as a human right is a policy direction you want to advance, consider the following ways to help us:

  1. Join our photo petitioners.
  2. Allow us to interview you using our Caring Citizen Freedom Survey on Healthcare and Human Rights. F

A Caring Economy Filled with Ethical Businesses

The Empathy Surplus Project became a UN Global Compact in 2014. UNGC is an initiative for corporations to align their operations around Ten Principles of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. Non-businesses may join to encourage the businesses and municipalities in their spheres of influence to do do the same. 

We also pledge to participate in and engage with the UN Global Compact and occupy compassion in the following ways:

  • Charter Caring Citizens' Congresses and partner with Rotary International.
  • Invite local businesses to join our Healthcare Is A Human Right Collaboration by promoting the Caring Citizen Freedom Survey: Healthcare and Human Rights
  • Invite local businesses and cities to join the UN Global Compact.

If you want to help with this, consider being our guest (see above).
