Today's IHTD Video contest feature:  "Our Education. America's Hope" is a short video directed by Donald Ung calling out to everyone to spread the word that the trillions of dollars used for the Iraq and Afganistan war could instead be used to fund America's future, which is our education. Filming students, a teacher, and a supervisor of a student treatment center, this video aims to empower viewers to be informed, to act, to realize that we are strong as long as we don't give up hope.

“Yo Soy el Army : America’s New Military Caste,” Big Noise’s co-production with Producciones Cimarron, looks at the militarization of the immigration debate. Alongside the Spanish-language media campaigns, the false promises and stringent laws that have even resulted in the deportation of non-citizen veterans, the US government is now considering the DREAM Act, legislation that offers a path to citizenship through military service.

Video submission for the If I Had a Trillion Dollars youth video contest.  "The Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have taken too many Arab and American lives. They have destroyed countries and souls, but they also have a pretty big price tag in dollars. Since 2001 our nation has embezzled over 1 Trillion dollars invading and occupying Southwest Asia. This is money that could have been used on things we need here at home. This video was made by youth interns who work for American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in collaboration with BAY-Peace (Better Alternatives for Youth. The video is a youth attempt to portray the economic cost of war."
