Project Partners

Partners of Community Supported Film:

The Killid Group TKG is an independent, Afghan public media group made up of 8 local radio stations and 2 magazines. TKG embraces one main concept: Afghan ownership of Afghanistan’s process, and is committed to one principle: people’s right to be informed and to be heard, which is the basis for good governance, accountability and transparency. CSFilm worked with TKG on the Aghan project and training. With CSFilm, TKG co-produced The Fruit of our Labor: Afghan Perspectives in Film.

American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) is a Quaker organization that promotes lasting peace with justice, as a practical expression of faith in action. AFSC partnered with CSFilm on Public Engagement for the Afghanistan Project, including being part of the congressional briefing.

Women’s Action for New Directions (WAND)  WAND’s mission is to educate the public and opinion leaders about the need to reduce violence and militarism, and redirect excessive military spending to unmet human and environmental needs. WAND partnered with CSFilm to host a webinar which presented CSFilm’s Compassion Campaign and discussed the importance of hearing local Afghan perspectives and including women’s participation for a peaceful path forward in Afghanistan.

3P Human Security 3P stands for Partners for Peace-building Policy; 3P Human Security works to foster understanding and support for conflict prevention and peace-building in the U.S. government. Like CSFilm, 3P emphasizes the need for local civil society perspectives and thus was a great partner on the congressional briefing on Afghan Perspectives in Film.
