We are one family, bonded together and sent to change conditions that breed poverty, injustice, discrimination and marginalization.

We care for one another. Caring gives birth to covenant relationships ―empathy, friendship, tenderness, compassion, mercy, unconditional love and deep respect.

The power of growth is in relationship where in every encounter we are both giver and receiver. We value ‘power with’ vs ‘power over’

Belief in the capacity to rise beyond one’s struggles.

Our Spirituality leads to personal transformation and transformation of the world.

We live what we believe that we are sent to those who have neither voice nor influence in this world.

We explore underlying root causes, health disparities, stories of impact, and a way forward--through the stories of experts. The cast of Hear Me has been impacted by community violence: street affiliation/gang violence, intergenerational trauma, and the criminal justice system. In our film, they are the experts--on their lives and on the root causes of gun violence. Screenings and talkbacks aim to unite Massachusetts around a broader conversation of effective violence prevention. Mass shootings account for less than 1% of deaths by firearm in our country. Suicide accounts for 56%. Homicide accounts for 43%. Hear Me is about the 43%.Registration link: us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZckd-qhqT0iHtZAn9XnDvlY3esn6AHCL7Wa ... See MoreSee Less

When I read the mission statement of the Little Sisters of the Assumption, I found it expressed my own sentiments when it said, “We bring together the least advantaged and the privileged in a spirit of family to inspire everyone to participate in creating a just society.”

I know that these 11 months have given me much more than two semesters at a university could ever have given me; I now feel much more ready to resume my studies.
