Day of Empathy

Meaningful criminal justice reform needs a community-wide response

March 1, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| Free

On March 1st, 2017, MassINC will join the national bipartisan initiative #cut50 and organizations across the country for a single day of action to unite in order to highlight the strength of the bipartisan criminal justice reform movement.

The Day of Empathy will highlight the needs and share the perspectives of Americans impacted by the current justice system – from survivors of violent crime, those who are addicted or mentally ill, incarcerated individuals working to transform themselves, people with a criminal record desperately seeking a second chance, and all community members impacted by crime, public safety, and violence.

Without empathy, we cannot achieve meaningful policy changes that keep our communities safe, our families whole, and our economy strong. There are thousands of people – mothers, daughters, children – who have stories to tell.

The Day of Empathy will be a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by the criminal justice system.
