Help Brave New Foundation Cast Their Next Rethink Afghanistan Video

Reported by Ellen - January 26, 2011 -

Last week, our friends at Brave New Foundation released a video to encourage people to post their reasons for getting out of the Afghanistan War on their “Because it’s Time” wall. Almost 1000 people have posted on the wall! BNF has selected 20 finalists for people to vote on their favorite comments. The top three will be featured in a video that sends a strong message to D.C. that Americans want this war to end – because it’s time.

As Derrick Crowe wrote in a Rethink Afghanistan blog post:

We’re approaching the one-year anniversary of the launch of President Obama’s escalated military campaign in Afghanistan, so we here at Brave New Foundation decided we’d mark the occasion with a new Rethink Afghanistan video that will convey the reasons why it’s time to end the war. We put out a call to our supporters to share their photo and the reasons why they think it’s time for the war to end on our “Because It’s Time” wall. Almost 1,000 people responded, and the community created a fantastic collage of images and personal statements to take a strong public stand for peace.

Vote here to help select the 3 people to appear in the next Rethink Afghanistan video.
