“Apathy: disregarding the suffering of others
Empathy: actively responding to the suffering of others”
Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles will host The Apathy Effect Exhibit on October 3-5, 2017. Admission is free and both self-guided and guided tours of the exhibit are available with online registration.
The Apathy Effect Exhibit is the creation of iEmpathize, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and eradication of child exploitation. The exhibit is a multi-media, immersive event, and includes film, photography and artifacts. Participants experience the stories of human trafficking survivors, and are empowered to move away from the apathy that fuels exploitation into a new state of awareness, empathy and, hopefully, active engagement.
“Because we all intersect with child exploitation, whether directly or indirectly, each of us has a responsibility to act. We help people identify how and where they intersect with this issue and equip them with tools and opportunities to respond.”
The tour takes about 30 to 45 minutes. The content is PG 13.
