Empathy Jam: The Reunion Tour

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In 2018, we hosted an MCN session about empathy and facilitated some empathy-building activities using our empathi[ZINE]. In such a changing, uncertain time as 2020, we want to bring some of these concepts back to the top of people’s consciousness. We invite you to engage in some person-to-person, group, and individual exercises that we’ll facilitate to find connection in a world that seems quite disconnected.
