Pro-Empathy Voters Are the Solution

Thank you for considering subscribing to Pro-Empathy Voters Are the Solution! How do we nurture more pro-empathy voters?

This blog is for stakeholders of the Empathy Surplus Network USA (ESNU). ESNU is a 501[c]3 charitable human rights thought leaders’ continuing education collective. Our founder, Charles Watts, and occasionally others in ESNU’s weekly forum share their insights on applying the latest brain insights from his mentor, George Lakoff, to political and moral civil discourse. Empathy Surplus Network USA stakeholders are encouraged to download ESNUs short framing guide entitled Pro-Empathy Freedom Declaration Toolkit and/or its longer framing guide, Lakoff’s Words to Use to Frame Our Solution.

Why subscribe?

ESNU members want to be more effective progressive communicators, especially on our blogs or letters to the editor. We study the work of cognitive scientist and linguist Dr. George Lakoff to apply Lakoff’s brain insights on progressive thought to current events in their centers of influence. Here’s a link to what the forums are studying. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.
