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.

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.
