“Let’s Lose Our House: A Modern Foreclosure Tale”

Let's Lose Our House is a smart and funny look at the often misunderstood roots of the housing crash. This short film follows the "all American family" from buying their first home to seeing it foreclosed on and shows how banks and the large financial industry destroyed peoples lives through fraudulent practices.

Yes! We Stand with Immigrants in NC! Sign on!

The AFSC's NC Immigrant Rights Program has been involved in an effort to monitor immigrant-related bills at the state legislature, promote pro-immigrant bills and fight anti-immigrant initiatives, including the NC House Select Committee on the State's Role in Immigration Policy.  Together with our allies, we are releasing the following petition to make it clear to our representatives that we oppose any efforts to alienate and harm our immigrant brothers and sisters, especially an Arizona/ Alabama type regressive immigration law.

Storyology: Digital Storytelling by Immigrants and Refugees returns to Charlotte in 2012! 

 In October 2010, AFSC-NC sponsored an amazing class with local immigrants that included workshops on storytelling, photography, basic video and audio editing, and community building that resulted in powerful 3-5 minute films about each person’s journey.  

 In January and February 2012, we are bringing Storyology to the International House of Charlotte, thanks to a grant from the Arts & Sciences Council.
