Nonprofit Design Collective

Empathy-based design is the key to solving the pressing urban issues of our time. Thriving, resilient places must address the plight of their most vulnerable residents – women, children, and the displaced. At Territorial Empathy, our team of volunteer urbanists, designers, and researchers work to support people in places often overlooked.


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.
