ZeroHarmNow works from Toronto. Our advocacy clinics and professional practice are global. Our work is built on a knowledge base of advocating for the forgotten, the abused and the powerless over two decades. Through professional consultations, vigorous public policy and legislative advocacy, thought-provoking writing, and research at the ZeroHarmNow compassion innovation lab – we seek to make compassion the new normal. 

We partner with universities, healthcare providers, municipalities, public institutions and private corporations to build a more formidable compassion agenda. Our extensive work in the media, through op-eds and interviews, promotes compassion literacy and awareness.  Our policy and legislative advocacy helps to deliver systemic advances where they are needed, including a public commitment to establishing a basic guaranteed income.

Our mission builds on the work of our long-standing advocacy clinics which support victims of institutional harm, including gender violence and sexual harassment, mental health crisis, elder impoverishment and patients and families experiencing the trauma of medical errors in healthcare systems. The voices of their lived experiences inform the work of ZeroHarmNow’s compassion innovation lab and public policy outreach and infuse a sense of urgency in the belief that when it comes to the future of the most vulnerable in the post-pandemic era, we have to work a lot harder at making sure they actually have a future.
