The Day of Empathy is an annual event that mobilizes bipartisan support for a more humane justice system in the United States. Dream Corps JUSTICE collaborates with the Empathy Network, America’s largest community of justice-impacted activists, to advocate for fearless solutions to our mass incarceration problem.
In 2022, we are turning empathy into action by holding our first ever Week Of Impact. Beginning Monday, March 28th, the week will feature activations led by justice-impacted advocates across the United States. The week will conclude with our sixth annual Day Of Empathy on Tuesday, April 5th, 2022 in Washington, DC, and streamed virtually.

Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I’m calling from [YOUR CITY/STATE] to urge [YOUR SENATOR] to support the EQUAL Act, S.79, and end the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine.
The injustice of the sentencing gap is clear, but it’s stuck around for decades and has ruined hundreds of thousands of lives.
Passing the EQUAL Act will bring thousands of people home from federal prison, shorten future sentences, and send the message that we must end the War on Drugs.
