There’s a quiet, gentle revolution sweeping through America’s prisons and communities, which started three years ago, on every 2nd Saturday in Community Kindness Circles in Swarthmore, PA’s Borough Hall. The project began with award-winning author, activist and filmmaker, Judith Trustone, and grew out of “Healing with Words,” her Creative Writing Programs in prisons. With anti-violence prisoners designing and funding the first batch of Kindness Cards, more than 70,000 have been distributed globally, so far.
The Global Kindness Revolution is spreading through Kindness Circles in a broad range of civic, religious, schools, and human rights groups. Community Kindness Circles are available for scheduling. For more information contact Judith Trustone at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-328-6101. For those unable to attend an event, join us at 4:00pm every Saturday for our Virtual Kindness Circle wherever you are (see directions on the Kindness Circle page). The Kindness Circle events compliment all religious beliefs and children are welcome to attend if they are able to sit quietly. The Circles are free, but donations toward the printing of more Kindness Cards are appreciated.
