RCRC’s Compassion School is a free virtual learning opportunity, open to anyone and everyone who longs for a more compassionate and just society, and who is ready to help build toward that society.


RCRC’s flagship program is our “Compassionate Care for Reproductive Decisions and Loss” training workshop, wherein we give tools to help clergy, health care workers, social workers, legal professionals, and others connect with the people they serve in meaningful and compassionate ways. As this workshop has focused on compassion as the core for how all services should be provided to individuals in the midst of reproductive decisions and loss, it serves as the inspiration for a special new offering from RCRC: Compassion School.
