Become a Citizen of Kindland
Be a citizen of Kindland and take the pledge!  Share random acts of kindness on social media using #kindland

Kindland is a Cleveland-focused initiative as a part of Values-in-Action’s national Just Be Kind campaign, which aims to make kindness the overriding, embedded, and unifying national value in America. The objective is to make Cleveland and its region the kindest place in the country. 

Cleveland will serve as the example for the rest of the country by focusing the collective efforts of our surrounding communities, businesses, schools and local organizations on creating and sustaining a unified sense of kindness, compassion, empathy and understanding. These values will be the guiding force behind our community coming together to find solutions to our nation’s most prominent issues including navigating through the COVID-19 crisis, social justice, racism, and political polarization.
