Compassionate Niagara Conference
At the 2018 Niagara County Poverty Conference, Mayor Walter Sendzik spoke about how St. Catharines, ON joined the Compassionate Cities movement and what they did to make their city more compassionate. His keynote presentation inspired the conference committee to take a more "compassionate" approach to the conference and it's programs - renaming the committee and conference, Compassionate Niagara.
