What a super idea! How nice it would be if there was no need for refugee camps?

"Daddy I Do" documentary TRAILER

The Purity Ball symbolizes a father's protection over his daughter's virginity, but how does this reflect in the choices she makes, understanding her sexuality, and knowing her worth as a woman? This documentary examines the effects of Abstinence-Only Programs versus Comprehensive Sex Education in schools and what society can do to help lower teen pregnancies, abortions, and STDS, as well as poverty and sexual abuse.

"Hir" Poem about trangsgendered youth.

This is a poem by Alysia Harris & Aysha El Shamayleh, it is about the dual identities of a transgender person.

Melissa sits in the back of the classroom afraid to speak up,
She pulls akwardly at her extra loose khaki cargo pants,
She doesn't want the boys to notice her.
