Naming The NVC USA Conference
Final title for the NVC USA Project conference:
Compassion in Action - Networking and Community Building for Nonviolent Communication in the United States
Agreed to take a week, let it marinate based on peoples' reactions, people can look over what's here, add their own ideas, edit. So invite some people to look at the current working title, and this page. Especially those who we might reach out to attend the conference. Connect/learn about their reactions.
By the end we were mostly looking at titles with a short poetic/metaphorical part and a longer, explanatory/literal part.
Earlier/other ideas are listed after this section.
Turning to Compassion - Networking and Community Building for Nonviolent Communication in the United States (the one that Kit asked everyone if it "passed the bar" for them on the call)
An alternate line for the second part: Supporting Growth of Communities and Networks in the United States
Many other options for the first part:
Gathering the Tribes
Age of Compassion
Meeting Needs For Hope
Change through Compassion
Change from Compassion
Creating A World that Works for All
Compassion in America
Seeds of Compassion
planting seeds, tending communities
Growing Compassionate Communities
Planting Seeds: a gathering to support new and existing US NVC communities
growing compassion in america: planting seeds, tending communities a national conference for the US conference
compassion growth community building gathering the US networks and communities of compassion
supporting the growth
Gathering the Tribes: networking and community building for NVC in the US
Seeds of Compassion: networking
Peace and Social Justice:
Meeting Needs for Hope/Dialogue
the US is a place of special significance internationally now... coming from a place of concern about the impact of the US on global scene
Creating A World that Works for All:
supporting the growth of compassionate NVC communities and networks in the US\
We didn't talk about "United States vs. "America"
A lot of things that came up for a name will be useful in crafting the NvcUsaConferenceInvitation.

How about replacing the first two words in the name with 'connecting'?
Connecting Compassion - Networking and Community Building for Nonviolent Communication in the United States
Reasoning - NVC helps bring forth compassion in each of us. The conference is seeking to link us together.
Hi this is Kit-as I've sat with this over the time since we last spoke for me the 'turning to compassion' phrase is what most touches my heart. Happy Thanksgiving all!!
