Youth Social Change Institute – Changed Us All

We were proud of the work AFSC did with KC area youth in our Social Change Institute and inspired by the work of the fifteen youth who whole-heartedly participated. We set out to create an environment where all ideas were respected and differences were embraced. We sought to have the youth deepen their understanding of and confront the injustices of our community and the power structures that create so much suffering in the world.

Let's Lose Our House is a smart and funny look at the often misunderstood roots of the housing crash.

This film was produced by the Foreclosure Working Group of Occupy Greensboro, North Carolina.
