Empathy Transformation webinar

Please join us for this webinar as we remember the victims of the Christchurch terror attack in March 2019. The focus for this year is empathy. It is the ability to understand the feelings and perspectives of others and to use that understanding to guide our actions.

Join our webinar to hear about empathy from the perspective of a close family member of one of the Shuhada (martyr) of the March 2019 Christchurch terror attacks.
