Empathy Education Resources

“Compassion means to suffer with. Not pity. Not sympathy. Not saving. But co-suffering. It’s a visceral desire to be with each other in the pain and a vital longing for new possibilities together. ⁣⁣⁣What if one of the great byproducts of this pandemic season was seeing our own story of struggle in each other’s stories, then not remaining silent when we hear their cries? ⁣⁣⁣What if on the other side of this earth-shattering time, we rebuilt a new world together with the broken pieces, leaving out racism in all its forms, white supremacy, police brutality, oppression, injustice, mayhem, violence, bitterness, and fear-mongering? ⁣⁣What if we who have benefited from this inequitable system humbled ourselves, leveraging our privilege to be part of a different way forward for our brothers and sisters of color and thus for us all?” ⁣⁣- @hopeheals ⁣⁣⁣
As an organization, we are listening to the voices of others with empathy and taking action. We encourage you to be brave and join us as we learn more, grow into our discomfort, and love one another. ⁣⁣⁣Our team has compiled a list of resources to explore and some ways to get involved.
