Day of Empathy Michigan

The Day of Empathy is a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for the millions of Americans behind bars and their loved ones. On March 5, 2019, Americans impacted by the criminal justice system nationwide and their allies will meet with lawmakers to share their stories and experiences. To reform our criminal justice system, we must first humanize and empathize with those who are affected by it.

Without empathy, we cannot achieve meaningful policy changes that keep our communities safe, our families whole, and our economy strong.
