During our Second Annual National Day of Empathy, #cut50 partnered with over 100 grassroots organizations, members of our Empathy Network, to hold 35 on the ground events in cities across the country, in 25 states.

On the Second Annual, National Day of Empathy, Americans impacted by the criminal justice system nationwide met with lawmakers to share their stories and experiences about their incarceration.

In order to reform our criminal justice system, we must first put faces to the statistics and create empathy in our lawmakers to reduce the prison population.

During our Second Annual National Day of Empathy, #cut50 partnered with over 100 grassroots organizations, members of our Empathy Network, to hold 35 on the ground events in cities across the country, in 25 states. 15 of these events  focused on Dignity for Incarcerated Women, and were planned and carried out by women who have been personally impacted by the justice system. Over 1500 people who have been incarcerated or had a loved one incarcerated, crime survivors, and criminal justice advocates participated in this day of action, making a strong case to legislators about the need for criminal justice reform.
