Empathy allows us to sense how people feel facing colliding crises.

Testing Your Powers of Empathy

How empathetic are we?

How do you feel about a short survey?

1. I easily feel sad when the people around me feel sad.

2. Before criticizing somebody, I try to imagine how I would feel if I were in his/her place.

3. It upsets me to see someone being treated disrespectfully.

4. If I learned that 29% of parents seeking medical care in a pandemic can’t easily access it, I would want to learn more in order to take action.

5. If I learned that 46% of parents seeking mental health care in a time of crisis, can’t easily access it, I would want to learn more in order to take action.

6. If I learned that 66% of parents seeking housing security programs in a time of massive job layoffs, can’t easily access them, I would want to learn more in order to take action.
