A video produced by students in AFSC's Racial Justice Through Human Rights program who are participating in the Youth Media Advocacy Project, sponsored by Carlow University.

Students were asked to produce a video concerning a human rights issue that they felt common to all students in the group (which consists of students from both public and private high schools, in both high income and low income sections of Pittsburgh, PA). They chose the issue of education equality because the recent budget cuts in Pennsylvania have exasperated what the students felt was already a desperate situation. They hope this piece will raise awareness in the general public to the issue of education inequality throughout the state of Pennsylvania.

U.S. Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan Return War Medals at NATO Summit

Democracy Now! broadcasts from Chicago, site of the largest NATO summit in the organization's six-decade history. On Sunday, veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, as well as members of Afghans For Peace, led a peace march of thousands of people. Iraq Veterans Against the War held a ceremony where nearly 50 veterans discarded their war medals by hurling them down the street in the direction of the NATO summit. We hear the soldiers' voices as they return their medals one by one from the stage. "I am giving back my global war on terror service medal in solidarity with the people of Iraq and Afghanistan," said Jason Heard, a former combat medic who spent 10 years in the U.S. Army. "I am deeply sorry for the destruction that we have caused in these countries and around the globe."


This four minute video shows the AFSC New Mexico project "Agri-Cultura Network" that successfully brought small organic farmers together to sell to the local public schools.

The farmers in the film were trained by AFSC and the farms shown were created in community partnerships with AFSC.

The film was made through the wonderful work of our partner Valle Encantado and Daniel Sonis.

Fredi Reyes’ Letter to my country

See video

Rather than celebrate NATO's visit to Chicago, we see it as important to highlight the austerity measures that the City is taking against its residents. In a climate where critical services like education and healthcare are being cut left and right, we hope to portray the City's glaring need to re-examine their priorities. People over profit! Say No to NATO!
