Our Day of Empathy goal is to create opportunities for youth and young adults to receive programming designed to help them overcome systematic barriers after being arrested instead of being incarcerated without receiving any type of assistance. We will also hold a town hall forum designed to allow lawmakers and decision makers the chance to learn directly from youth; giving lawmakers the chance to understand the needs, changes and thoughts of the youth they represent.
