Missouri Day of Empathy

March 05, 2019 at 12pm - 3pm | Gregg/Klice Community center | 1600 John Buck O'Neil Way Kansas City, MO 64108 United States | Map and directions ›

In order to reform our criminal justice system, we must first humanize and empathize with those who are impacted by it. This includes crime survivors and those who have committed crimes.

The Day of Empathy highlights the need for #JusticeReformNOW and shares the perspectives of Americans impacted by the current justice system - from survivors of violent crime to those who are addicted to opioids or other drugs and those who mentally ill to incarcerated individuals working to transform themselves, people with a criminal record desperately seeking a second chance, and all community members impacted by crime, public safety, and violence.

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

There are thousands of people - mothers, daughters, children - who have stories to tell.

We will sit with legislators, activists and women that were in prison, and families that were impacted.

Speakers: Mayor Pro Tem Scott Wagner and State Rep. Brandon Ellington

Participating Organizations: Anointed Girls of Grace, Sisters With a Purpose, The Help KC, and We The People
