• A Look At What's Happening In Washington D.C. - What's Our Response?

    44 views 1 week ago
    Jerry O'Donnell serves as the Communications Director and Senior Advisor to Congresswoman, Grace Napolitano of California's 32nd Congressional District. He has been serving in her office for approximately eight years. Jerry grew up in the Church of the Brethren and attended Juniata College, serving a year in Brethren Volunteer Service before going to the Dominican Republic to co-ordinate work camps for Brethren groups. While in the Dominican Republic he yearned to become involved in Washington D.C. and applied to be an intern for Grace Napolitano, which led to his current position. Jerry discusses the current administration "zero tolerance policy" of separating children from their parents who are seeking safety and a better life from violence.

    "Brethren Voices" also meets with Nathan Hosler of the Washington City Church of the Brethren. Besides being a "free minister," Nathan serves in the Church of the Brethren Office of Peace Building and Policy which involves the witness actions of the greater church with the elected officials on the local level as well as Washington D.C. Natan is also involved in networking with ecumenical and interfaith advocacy coalitions and organizing Brethren members, congregations, districts, and national staff around issues of concern for the denomination. Nathan discusses a variety of issues and initiatives and what gives him hope in these challenging times.
