Day of Empathy

Tuesday, March 6, 2018

9:00-10:00 A.M.

State Capitol, Southside Steps

The Day of Empathy is a national day of action used to generate empathy on a massive scale for millions of Americans impacted by the criminal justice system. The Day of Empathy will share the perspectives of Californians impacted by the current justice system - from both survivors of violent crime to formerly incarcerated individuals working to transform themselves (people with a criminal record desperately seeking a second chance, and all community members impacted by crime, public safety, and violence).

Young Thurgood Marshall faces one of his greatest challenges while working as a lawyer for the NAACP. Marshall travels to conservative Connecticut when wealthy socialite Eleanor Strubing accuses black chauffeur Joseph Spell of sexual assault and attempted murder. He soon teams up with Sam Friedman, a local Jewish lawyer who's never handled a criminal case. Together, the two men build a defense while contending with racist and anti-Semitic views from those who deem Spell to be guilty.
