Nonprofit Design Collective

Centering the oppressed through empathetic, community-based design is necessary for overcoming systemic inequities. At Territorial Empathy, we co-create just, thriving, and uplifting spaces with the historically overlooked. Our urbanists, architects, and researchers are committed to engaging in culturally sensitive, anti-racist, and anti-bias practices that promote healing and joy.

Our Pandemic Response

Here at Territorial Empathy, we’ve been thinking about our role in supporting the pandemic relief efforts. In these uncertain times, it’s important for our community to be of service to those who need it the most. This is why we’ve launched the Covid-19 Empathy Grants. If your community is currently underserved and would benefit from our research and advocacy work, we encourage you to apply.
