Social Justice and Social Empathy

May 2004
Berkeley, CA

What does inequality have to do with empathy? Robert Reich delivered a public lecture, “Social Justice and Social Empathy: Where Did They Go? How Can We Regain Them?” sponsored by The Greater Good Science Center on the UC-Berkeley campus. Reich, a former labor secretary in the Clinton administration and a distinguished visiting professor at Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, engaged the overflowing audience in a lively discussion of how rising inequality and frayed social bonds. He also shared his thoughts on the role of a renewed form of public leadership to remind people of their responsibilities to one another.
