*“Film: Child's Play"*
*with Michael Sheridan*

Four children in Sialkot, Pakistan, introduce us to their daily lives 
and tell us why they work stitching soccer balls. The film argues that 
to eliminate child labor, viable economic options must be created so 
that parents can afford not to have their children work. Produced for 
Save the Children Fund-UK and shown at the United Nation's International 
Conference on Child Labor and at the British Sports Apparel Industry's 
annual conference. The film helped change policy and raised 1.2 million 
dollars for Save the Children's Sialkot program.

*“Exonerating Ethel”*
*with Jennifer Meeropol*
Jenn Meeropol discusses the successes and lessons learned from the 2016 
campaign to exonerate her grandmother, Ethel Rosenberg. In 1951, at the 
height of the McCarthy era, Ethel was convicted of “conspiracy to commit 
espionage” alongside her husband Julius in a trial that would come to 
symbolize "Red Scare" hysteria and the U.S.’s willingness to commit 
injustice in the name of national security. As we mark the 70th 
anniversary of the conviction, Jenn shares what comes next for the 
exonerate campaign, including the exciting possibility of a relaunch 
effort in the months to come, and why it still matters today.
