2018 #MakeMercyReal Video Contest Winners

We asked young adults to share with us through short videos how to "Make Mercy Real" by living out Mercy's Critical Concerns.  We thank all of our 2018 contest entrants for their great work.  Following review of submissions by our panel of judges, our justice team recognizes these winners.

 

"This year's winning video was selected by our judges for its creativity, emotional connection to the viewer and its clear focus on the injustices faced by women around the world," said Mike Poulin, director of justice outreach for the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest Community, and the creator of the video contest.
