On June 26th, 2016 Born This Way Foundation co-founder Lady Gaga joined philanthropist Phil Anschutz and His Holiness the Dalai Lama to challenge America’s cities to be kind. The panel met in front of more than 200 mayors from across the county, where they discussed the role that kindness can play in improving the mental health of citizens, and how current “cities of kindness” – like Anaheim, California – have also experienced a decrease in crime.
As a result of this discussion, the mayors voted unanimously to commit to 100 billion acts of kindness across the country. To help support this ambitious goal, Born This Way Foundation is proud to be a part of City of Kindness – an organization launched with the leadership of Mayor Tom Tait of Anaheim, one of the driving forces behind the kindness movement. Mayor Tait ran on a platform of kindness and won. To hear more about his story, check out his guest post for Channel Kindness.
Cities across the country are embracing the tangible power of kindness, bringing together community leaders, elected officials, and young people to create positive change. Want your city to join the movement? Tell your mayor you’re ready to make your city a City of Kindness!
