The Day of Empathy is a national day of action to generate empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by the incarceration industry.
Virtual reality has been described as an “empathy machine.” #cut50, a Dream Corps initiative, launched the Day of Empathy campaign to create empathy on a massive scale for the millions of Americans behind bars. In partnership with Benefit Studios, the team will create a series of virtual reality experiences based on true stories that reveal a broken aspect of our criminal justice system.
The campaign will recruit Ambassadors of Empathy who will bring virtual reality visors/headsets into all 50 state capitols and the U.S. Congress.Through the impact of VR, key decision-makers will experience the human consequences of a criminal justice system that has gotten too big, too unfair and too brutal.
