At the recent Nonprofit Technology Conference, I met Will Coley, the writer of a short video that uses humor to talk about immigrant rights. I strongly believe that nonprofits must try to step outside their traditional communication boxes to find new ways to talk about their issues and this is a great example. This is part of Movement Vision Lab's $1000 Video Contest: Community Values & Immigration.
This video lampoons the government's bureaucratic processes and attitude towards immigrants. One viewer of Will's video said "great video. i currently am in the process of bring my fiancée here from the Philippines. That is exactly how it seems to be. no help, no answers and always kept in the dark. it takes 6 months to approve a packet that takes 15 minutes to review."
Watch Will's video and vote for it! (Contest ends March 31, 2008).
