About Coping with the Economy
America has been hit hard by the economic recession. Families across the country are losing their homes, their jobs, and their morale. Now, more than ever, it’s important for Americans to reconnect with each other and our communities in order to find productive ways to work together through these hard times.
Check out this incredible video made by a group of high-school students in Pomona. Inspired? Make your own video using our free online editing tools! You can use your webcam, upload footage you’ve shot on your own camera, or even grab footage from our America Then section to add a little historical flavor to the mix!
How are you coping? How is your family coping? Tell us your story! We’re listening.
