TOS-USA supports gender equality in all countries. We have joined a campaign led by Dr. Deepa Padhi of the TOS in India to promote gender equality and to stop violence against women. Deepa’s campaign has the support of local government officials and uses billboards, workshops and public plays to educate the public. Deepa’s TOS group raises money to pay for rehabilitation of addicts, since addictions are often the cause of violence against women. Donate to this work by choosing “women’s issues campaign” from the drop down menu on our donate page.
Signers of The CFC encourage a world where everyone is committed to living by the principle of compassion. Signers pledge to work toward building a more compassionate world. The TOS joins with many other individuals, organizations and cities that have been inspired by the Charter For Compassion to work in diverse ways to create cultures of compassion locally and globally. The Theosophical Order of Service encourages its members around the country to approach their local officials and ask them to join the effort by signing the Charter as a Compassionate City.
TOS-USA president, Nancy Secrest drives to Ojai, CA where she delivered a presentation on the history, aims, recent accomplishments and future vision of the TOS-USA. The presentation was also given by Betty Bland at the Mid-South Federation meeting in April. Nancy will be visiting TOS groups in California, Oregon and Washington this fall.
