Using Your Voice for Good

Using Your Voice for Good

From May 20-24, three Community Care coworkers and five Community Care members traveled to Washington, D.C., for a service trip. The purpose of the trip was to learn how using one’s individual and collective voice is a form of service to others, specifically through education, protest, and lobbying.

The trip began with an education focus with a visit to the Museum of the American Indian and the Museum of African American History and Culture. The members thoroughly enjoyed both museums, and many of them cited the museums as the highlight of their experience.

On May 22, the group took a self-guided tour of the national monuments from the lens of resistance and demonstration. They discussed the many protests, demonstrations, and political gatherings that have occurred on the national mall and how that is a form of service. Members reflected on the forms of resistance they actively participate in and how they want to continue to grow that part of their daily life.

The final day was spent learning how to lobby with a Catholic lobbying group and meeting with U.S. Senator Durbin and the staff of U.S. Senator Duckworth, who represent Illinois. The members lobbied for both senators to support ongoing immigration legislation by sharing personal stories.

Our Community Care members represented themselves and Mercy Home exceptionally well, and we are so proud of the service they provided to their country and Mercy Home during their trip to Washington DC.
