    The Sisters of Mercy were founded out of a deep concern for the needs of persons who are poor. As a Mercy institute, we address, through education and advocacy, five critical concerns: 

    Nonviolence: We work for peace through prayer, education, personal and communal practices of nonviolence, and legislative advocacy to reduce armed conflicts, gun violence and human rights abuses.

    Immigration: Believing firmly in the dignity of every person, we work for just and humane immigration laws in the U.S., address policies that push people to flee their countries, and examine the global impact of immigration.

    Racism: We believe racism is an evil affecting us all. We work to recognize and dismantle institutional racism in order to become an anti-racist multicultural community. 

    Women: Through our schools, colleges, health-care institutions and spirituality centers, and through our legislative advocacy, we give special attention to women’s education, health and spirituality.

    Earth: We believe in the need for sustainability of life, supporting both a lifestyle and legislation that acknowledge everyone’s right to water and the need to address climate change.

    Essay Prompt:
    After reading about the critical concerns of Mercy, reflect on your own. What do you care deeply about? What calls you to action? Then, describe in no more than 200 words what your critical concern is and how you want to make a difference?
