California Day of Empathy - LA

March 05, 2019 at 6pm - 8pm | Chucos Justice Center | 1137 Redondo Beach Blvd Inglewood, CA 90302 United States | Map and directions ›


In Los Angeles, we are no different than any other city across this country. Whether you’re a mother or a father raising your children or a young aspiring star looking for fame; We all desire to be safe, to be loved, to be understood and to connect with one another.

Unfortunately, despite those facts, Los Angeles is home to the second largest jail system in the country and we have more people in poverty than any other big city in America. For many of our residents, those most basic desires become a dream deferred.

Join various community based organizations, activists, advocates and local officials for the Los Angeles Day of Empathy as we seek to amplify the voices of those most directly impacted by the criminal justice system, poverty and violence. Here, you will listen to stories of triumph and transformation, enjoy art exhibitions and have the ability to engage in conversations that humanize the experience of many of society’s forgotten people.

We invite you to join us in the conversation and creation of more just and empathetic society & Government. Come interact, ask questions, explore solutions and leave with a greater understanding oft these basic human issues.

“People are harder to hate close up. Move in.” - Brene Brown
