My Jewish family lost its home to the Nazis. I decide to return the reparations to the occupiers of our home in Germany, and I go to Germany to get our home back. In Germany, I suddenly realize I'm a hypocrite: here I am, complaining about the property taken from my ancestors, when in America I'm living on and profiting from the land taken from the Native Americans. And then I have an idea: If Germany owes me for sixty five years of back rent, and I owe the Native Americans for sixty five years of back rent, why not let the Native Americans collect directly from Germany and cut out the middleman? Four Native Americans go to Germany to execute the "assigned claim."
TULE LAKE (Michelle Ikemoto, 7 min.)
In the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II, over 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were, by government order, forcibly relocated to internment camps across the country. Surrounded by barbed wire and guard towers, the Tule Lake "segregation center" in northern California was the largest of such camps and did not close until after the war.
Set in the winter of 1943 after martial law was imposed on the camp, 'Tule Lake' is an animated short film about perseverance, based on the true story of one internee and her actions one night.

In Seattle, Washington, REAL CHANGE exists to provide opportunity and a voice for low-income and homeless people while taking action for economic justice.
