National Day of Empathy

March 2, 12:30pm - 3:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Webinar Add to Calendar

The Day of Empathy is an annual, national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for the millions of Americans impacted by the criminal justice system. In partnership with hundreds of activists all across the country mobilizing to spotlight their local efforts, we aim to: - Build empathy in our elected officials — governors, state legislators, and other policymakers — to take action on criminal justice reform; - Humanize and uplift the stories of those who have been impacted by the criminal justice system through personal interactions with lawmakers to demonstrate the impact that policy has on the lives of impacted people, their spouses, their children, their parents, their friends, crime survivors, and their communities. Hosted by Ka Waiwai ma Nu?uanu, Benefit Partners Foundation, and ‘Ekolu Mea Nui in partnership with ACLU of Hawaii, Dream Corps JUSTICE, Hawaii Health and Harm Reduction Center, Matsunaga Institute for Peace, and Papa Ola Lokahi
