October 22, 2012—Miami Dade College will screen a new documentary film “Up to Us” at the Wolfson
Campus on November 5 at 6 pm.
The 20-minute film, which was shot this summer in New York, Atlanta and at both the Democratic
and Republican Conventions, follows two young Americans — Atlanta native Kyle Murphy, 23, who
served as an AmeriCorps member at Habitat for Humanity, and Brandon West, 27 a Masters in Public
Administration graduate, who is underemployed (for 18 months), but is seeking work in a public service
The film specifically highlights the www.onemillionnewjobs.org campaign as a viable pathway toward
increasing economic mobility, while it makes the case for voting as a means of supporting the measure.
“Up to Us” was produced with support from Own the Vote (www.ownthevote.us) an initiative from
Comcast and NBC Universal that aims to engage and educate young voters about the political process.
Own the Vote has partnered with ElectNext, Rock the Vote and the National Constitution Center to help
create awareness about and encourage voter registration and voter participation.
