On January 12, the Fremont City Council approved the Fremont Compassionate City Charter and officially designated Fremont as a Compassionate City. Across the United States, as well as the rest of the world, communities have committed themselves to the universal “golden rule,” to treat others as you would like to be treated.
Over the past year, a group of local Fremont residents, members of Tri-City Interfaith Council, the Human Relations Commission and others worked together on this endeavor. The City of Fremont knows that compassion is an essential ingredient in building and maintaining thriving, healthy, resilient, and innovative enterprises, institutions, and communities, which is why the City and its residents have chosen to adopt and craft a charter unique to Fremont.
