Review for Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an outreach ambassador for the AODVC I have referred a number of women living outside of the U.S. and experiencing abuse. This is the only resource for these women, some of whom live in countries where there is little or no support for them as foreigners. The U.S. has laws protecting American women living in the U.S., and for non-U.S. nationals living in the States experiencing abuse - there is nothing that protects an American woman living outside of the U.S. The AODVC is a critical resource that does amazing work for women and children who desperately need their continued support.

Review for Invisible Children Inc., San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

Understand that IC's approach is different than a traditional one - do your research!!! Their goal was to increase awareness of the issue - job done. Russell admits that the issues are very complex and absolutely encourages the audience to look into this for themselves - this film was nine years in the making. If you do your homework, they explain how they work and where the $$ goes. DO YOUR RESEARCH. Thoroughly. And think about that fact that they've gotten *****80 million+ viewers****** to pay attention to an issue about which they'd had little or no knowledge or concern until they say what IC produced. I'd say that's pretty priceless.
