Be a Rethink Afghanistan Producer

Want to Be Part of Our Newest Documentary?

Last Thursday, we launched a ground-breaking documentary campaign opposing military escalation in Afghanistan. This is our newest full-length film, Rethink Afghanistan, which is being released in segments online for free. The excitement is already building around the trailer for part one of our film with press coverage in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, The Nation, AlterNet, Open Left, and elsewhere. And, over 19,000 people have already signed the petition calling for congressional oversight hearings that educate the public about this war!

Now, we are taking our campaign to the next level and we need your help. We need to raise $25,000 by March 13th. At that point, two donors have graciously committed to matching each dollar you donate, which means every dollar you give then becomes $3.

Want to help us reach our goal? Donate $20 today and be recognized as a Producer on the Rethink Afghanistan documentary. We will list your name on a special section of the site.

These funds will enable us to complete the next three segments of our Rethink Afghanistan documentary, focusing on issues like costs of war, effects on civilians, and the conflict in Pakistan. Your donation will also allow us to hire videographers in Afghanistan and Pakistan and have the film translated into Farsi.

With Afghanistan having the potential to be a long, drawn-out quagmire our country cannot afford, we must call attention to the issues surrounding this war immediately. We need your help to make that happen.

Lastly, please forward this to your friends and family members. Ask them to sign the petition requesting congressional oversight and join the 19,000 people who want Congress to raise critical questions about Afghanistan.
