Replay: Noor Tagouri on Empathy and Modern Day Activism

If you’re feeling a little lost, stuck or overwhelmed with grief as we watch the violence unfolding in the Middle East, this episode is for you. A fair warning: There are no hot takes. No confident opinions. Just shared grief for every precious human being impacted by the acute conflict happening, and also those impacted by the systematic violence and dehumanization that has been happening for decades in the region and across the globe. Today’s episode is a re-aired conversation with Muslim-American journalist and activist Noor Tagouri who teaches us about one of the most powerful questions we can ask ourselves in times such as these. A call towards curiosity and courage. I hope you feel challenged, encouraged and a little less alone.
