HERE is an update from Brave New Foundation focusing on the media campaigns they have been running on immigration reform, the American justice system, War Cost, and the American military's and "intelligence" communities use of drones. I have donated to some of these campaigns (BNF has also taken on the koch brothers and their repiglican / tea-bagger allies ) and these media campaigns do have an impact. Check them out......

CREATING MEDIA THAT MAKES AN IMPACTDONATE
Beyond Bars Wins Prestigious AwardThe National Council on Crime & Delinquency honored Beyond Bars as part of its annual Media for a Just Society Awards. “Law & Disorder”, which contrasts the criminal justice system on TV with the one in real life, won in the TV/Video category. The piece was screened for high school, college, and law school students as part of a live webcast with the ACLU last year for Constitution Day. Beyond Bars won the award among a field of nominees which included Mother Jones, NPR, and BBC.

Immigration Reform Efforts Celebrated by AILACuéntame’s Immigration Reform campaign is being recognized by the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association through its 2013 Advocacy Award. The award recognizes outstanding efforts in support of AILA’s legislative and media advocacy agenda, which is to advocate for fair and reasonable immigration law and policy, primarily through informing the public with media outreach. Cuéntame’s latest video exposes the rampant abuse conducted by border patrol officers and the harsh human cost that results.

War Costs Fights 'Signature Strikes'Our War Costs campaign is in high gear working on Unmanned: America’s Drone Wars and recently released a short investigative video that pinpoints the U.S.’s use of ‘signature strikes’ and their detrimental effects. You can also sign a petition asking Congress to end signature strikes and if we get enough signatures, we will use the petition to get a Member of Congress to introduce legislation ending signature strikes that kill innocent civilians. If you aren’t already, you can still become a Producer on Unmanned and help us in these crucial last months.

Dear Supporters,
Earlier this week, the Supreme Court made a historical decision by ruling that the Defense of Marriage Act, signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996, violated the Fifth Amendment. This ruling will allow same-sex couples to receive federal benefits.
Thanks for your continued support,
