Los Angeles students in AFSC's Help Increase the Peace class, a peace education and leadership development course at the Academic Leadership Community, produced this video.

It is one of 25 official selections for the third annual "If I Had a Trillion Dollars" youth film festival, which asks young people to speak out on the federal budget via short videos that answer the question “what would you do with $1 trillion—for yourself, your family, and your community.” The youth are asked to consider the $1 trillion spent yearly on the U.S. military; the $1 trillion spent on the wars abroad, and the $1 trillion plus in tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

This video was created by the American Friends Service Eommittee, PA program's Racial Justice Through Human Rights group in 2012 together with the Youth Media Advocacy Project. The youth's deep concern for education and the deficiency of the schools led them to want to raise awareness in the community about the right to a good education.

On Dec.28, 2012, AFSC Iowa joined with several other groups in coming together as community to weave a circle of protection around our children from violence. People gathered at Hubble Elementary School in Des Moines to show support for a conversation on how people can protect our children from violence.

Engage our influence in our groups, faith communities. Spend time with children, reading, in play, and talking together.
