Founder and Director of Mali Rowan Presents, Mali Rowan
Leach is host, producer, catalyst, social media specialist. Her key focus
is social media & transformation, social healing and restorative justice.
She says empathy is like bridge or a pair of shoes that alchemize one's
awareness,extending it beyond our immediate selves
into the experiences, feelings, andawareness's of others in the past, present and future.
The opposite is like living in a dark cave. We
need to move the justice system out of the cave into the light of
restorative empathy and justice.
