If I Had a Trillion Dollars

five young people talking

If I Had A Trillion Dollars is a national youth video contest and film festival. We ask young people aged 10-23, "If YOU had the power to choose, how would you spend 1 trillion dollars? What could that money do for your family, for your community, for your nation, or for the world?"

Please join us for an evening of youth voices on the cost of war.

The Year of Nonviolent Protest

Dear Friends,

Thank you for standing with AFSC and the Wage Peace campaign in 2011!

There are many of you who have worked for years to insure that there would be no permanent US military bases in Iraq and that US troops would leave.

Congratulations, yesterday the last US combat troops deployed out of Iraq.

AFSC's Program Update November 2011

This is a recording of the American Friends Service Committee’s Monthly Program Update call from November 10, 2011 with General Secretary Shan Cretin and Great Lakes Regional Director Michael McConnell, who is based out of Chicago.

They discussed AFSC’s work for Economic Justice, including discussion of the ‘Human Cost’ of war banners and the ‘Windows and Mirrors mural exhibit. They also covered AFSC involvement with ‘Occupy Together’ and resources such as ‘Move the Money Toolkit’ and the ‘If I Had a Trillion Dollars’ youth film contest and festival.

Toward Peace & Justice, November 2011: The Cost of Economic Injustice

Dear Friends,

We live in a world of stark contrasts. 

If I Had a Trillion Dollars Youth Film Festival

The American Friends Service Committee and National Priorities Project are excited to offer young people a chance to lift their voice by submitting a video to the If I Had a Trillion Dollars National Youth Film Festival.

What Would Youth Do with $1 Trillion?

Dear Friends,

With President Obama's confirmation that all US troops will leave Iraq by the end of the year it's time again to consider the human and financial costs of war. More than $1 trillion have been spent on Iraq and Afghanistan, just imagine what benefit that money could have wrought. It’s time to hear what  young people – who will be paying for these wars for years to come – have to say about how best to remedy the distorted spending priorities shown in the current federal budget.
