LIKE our Facebook page and join the ESP George Lakoff Reading and Discussion Group. Collective adult education strengthens caring citizen thought leadership. 

Empathy is the soul of democracy and the foundation of our republic, citizens caring for each other, leading to better standards of life in larger freedoms. That morality of care is being systematically dismantled by a morality of obedience to authoritarians.

Reframing the debate around the core American values of empathy for and responsibility to one another is absolutlely necessary.

Consider Our Human Rights Pocketbook Venture – a Positive Peace Initiative

ESP wants to distribute a personal pocketbook copy of the Illustrated Universal Declaration of Human Rights to every 2nd, 5th, and 9th-grader and every first-year college student every year. That will take a lot of adults talking about human rights. Support the Human Rights Pocketbook Venture Today.

What’s YOUR human rights pocketbook venture?

The first Human Rights Pocketbook Venture was in Clinton County, Ohio. You can donate to that venture here, or start your own. Click on the video above and see what the four Rotarian Action Group for Peace members, who live and work in Wilmington, Ohio, are doing at Wilmington College to help incoming freshmen prepare for the college’s annual Westheimer Peace Symposium.

George Lakoff's Resources

The basic idea is this: It is free and open to all. We will provide framing suggestions regularly over social media, and whoever receives them can decide how to use them, and whether to share them or retweet them.  The process is bottom up.

We also offer this framing service to activist organizations, media folks, and elected officials and their staffs.

Your Donations Strengthen Caring Thought Leadership Education
