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 copy of the Illustrated Universal Declaration of Human Rights to every 9th grader and first-year college student every year. That will take a lot of adults talking about human rights. Support the Human Rights Pocketbook Venture Today.

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.
Reframing our conversations is social change. The Empathy Surplus Project Foundation is a charitable collective education organization headquartered in Wilmington, Ohio that encourages its stakeholders to inwardly digest and use the work of Dr. George Lakoff every day to frame caring conversations that promote human rights. Donations are exempt from federal income taxation under section 501(a) and described in section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Your donations help strengthen human rights education in our online communities of practice and our partnerships with ethical businesses that participate in the UN Global Compact, civil society organizations like Rotary, and local government task forces. We promote effective government of, by, and for people, progressive markets, and mutual responsibility through Four Empathic Activities, described on our home page. For example, $10 per month allows us to distribute 25 Human Rights Pocketbooks to potential stakeholders every year. Please donate monthly today.
