Community Values Community Values Pacheco Community

On May 15th, Voluntario Global and Pacheco Community coordinators discussed the values of community organizations like us.

In order to start the discussion, we read the Heinz Dilemma, used by Lawrence Kohlberg in Essays on Moral Development (1981).

The dilemma stated a situation in which its resolution implied a decision that compromised the moral of a person. The story invited us to think about what guides our actions.

We believe that the values ​​we build throughout our lives determine our decisions. We talked about how, today, values ​​are related to individual problem solving, that is, we tend to seek to satisfy our personal interests. We believe that as a social organization, we must build a different perspective towards building community.

Social organizations fulfill a role of educators different from the way we can see it in the more formal areas of education. We build collective knowledge that takes into account the knowledge of all the peoples who are part of it. This is how through our actions we fight to create community values, because we understand the importance that it means to be able to solve problems together.

The story also allowed us to understand what kind of democracy we have and that, in today's historical context, we believe that it does not work, since it does not guarantee the social welfare we need as citizens. That is why we work for a participatory democracy that assures us some of the values ​​that we at Pacheco Community believe are important, such as the search for consensus in diversity, justice, solidarity and equity, in order to live in a society that we consider pluralistic, where all voices are heard.
