One Girl's Call for Peace

Chaltu Uli, a middle school student in Worthington, Minnesota, is passionate about working for peace for the Oromo people. To magnify Chaltu's call for action, we teamed up with Tim Foss of More Belief, combining illustration and video storytelling.

I hope you'll be inspired to stand with Chaltu and to make your next video project as big-minded and creative as can be.

Chaltu's Wish:
“I want everyone to see the video and share it to their representatives and senators so they can take action.”

File Under:
Small-town America. Watercolor. International arms trade. Farm land. Ethiopian politics. Immigration. Girl hero.

Chris's Advice:
When you’re looking to make something new, don’t be afraid to reach outside your own field and community. Repast values all kinds of partnerships, and when you have compelling story, we’re driven to find a way to help tell it.

Tim's Advice:
The problem with making a video sometimes has less to do with making the video and more to do with whether anyone’s going to really see it. Chaltu and her teacher were invested in this. They hustled. And the groundswell it created in Worthington was worth their work.
