Social Justice Video Contest Winners Announced!

May 21, 2021

For this year's 2021 Social Justice Video contest, we asked young adults to create short videos that explore the realities of the Sisters of Mercy's Critical Concerns of Immigration, Racism, Earth, Women and Nonviolence. 

“Even during a year when schools were greatly affected by the pandemic, we received over 30 videos from across the country and one entry from Jamaica. The judges of this year’s contest were impressed by the variety presented in the three winning videos, all of which are both unique and meaningful,” said Mike Poulin, Justice resource manager for the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas.

Congratulations to the winners!
