Giving Guide: Compassion Works for All


Compassion Works for All provides mindfulness and meditation programs for people in jails and prisons. Its mission is to offer healing and hope through compassionate actions, advocacy and teaching for the disenfranchised, marginalized and all those affected by America’s prison system. CWFA lives out the principles of compassion in order to liberate those associated with the prison system from suffering in all its forms. It works towards a world in which communities and institutions ensure that everyone can thrive and no one is forgotten.
