Ridgefield, CT, USA




We are a non-partisan, non-profit, 501(c)3 initiated by a group of Ridgefield residents who know that living in a compassionate community improves lives. Born out of concerns about the high rates of stress, depression, and bullying among our youth, the incivility and hostility on all social media platforms, as well as the increase in hate vandalism in our area, we feel deeply that Ridgefield is OUR town and that, TOGETHER, we can do something to “shift” the culture. Our ultimate goal is to create a Ridgefield where every person - no matter their age, ethnicity, gender, abilities, religion, political, or sexual orientation - feels welcome and respected. Compassionate responsiveness can change our world, one person and one act at a time.
