West High group seeks to teach empathy

Our overall vision is to teach and show empathy, and cover difficult topics so little kids know that they are not alone,” Walker, who leads the group, said.

Multico has spread this message of empathy, tolerance and acceptance to Madison Metropolitan School District elementary, middle and high school students for the past 18 years. Under the guidance of Walker, the students write and direct sketches based upon their own childhood and adolescent experiences, especially those in the context of school.
