CHANGE THROUGH EMPATHY
CHANGING THE WAY WE THINK ABOUT PHILANTHROPHY
We believe that radical or critical empathy is intersectional and takes humans, animals, and the environment into account.
Engaging in empathy is naturally anxiety-inducing as we can never be sure if our assumptions of another’s experience are correct.
Studies indicate that knowledge, courage, and self-empowerment play a key role in taking empathetic action.

THE EMPATHY PLEDGE
I believe that Empathy can reduce suffering in the world, therefore I pledge that:
- I will make a conscious effort to enhance my empathetic abilities
- I will be mindful of my ego which can discourage my ability to relate to others
- I will stand and speak up for the well-being of humans, animals, and our planet
- I will align my thoughts, speech, and actions with the core principle of empathy
