Empathy and Neighborhood – Friday, December 8th 7pm at UMS Church

Rose Park Neighborhood Association has facilitated ‘kitchen table ‘ discussions a couple of times a  year for a few years. Last one was “Women and Resilience” and was hosted at Hobo Jane’s boutique. Well received.

We’ve been working on one around the topic of empathy.  We are thinking it may be a good time to ‘dust off’ its use and bring it to the foreground. The simple definition is “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” Yet the ability is at times challenging. The discussion will link empathy to neighborhood(s). So, we are reaching out to our residents, friends, neighbors, non-profits and all to join us Friday, December 8th at 7pm at the Community Room at UMS Church – 8th & Obispo (door off 8th St. side).

So to get those empathetic juices going a Friday night is one of the most challenging times to find parking….so bus, uber/lyft/walk/bike/bundle up.
