Landecker Fellow Mamobo Ogoro supports “Empathy is a Gamechanger,” a new initiative which aims to tackle bullying, racism, online hate speech, and a “cruel culture of division.”
The Empathy is a Gamechanger initiative was established by Narrative 4, a Limerick-based charity that runs empathy education programs. As part of the program, Narrative 4 offers free online training bringing “an end to hate with empathy.” Together with Mamobo, the new program is backed by broadcaster Louise Cantillon, musician Colm Mac Con Iomaire, comedian Martin Beanz Warde, and many others.
Mamobo is one of thirty 2021-2022 Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
