ITVS: Video and educational resources for social justice

This is a resource from the United States that has videos and lesson plans that would work well in some social justice classrooms.
“The Independent Television Service (ITVS) funds, presents, and promotes award-winning documentaries and dramas on public television and cable, innovative new media projects on the Web, and the Emmy Award-winning weekly series Independent Lens Monday nights at 10:00 PM on PBS.” Source:

“Community Classroom is an innovative and free resource for educators, offering short-form film modules adapted from ITVS’s award-winning documentaries and standards-based lesson plans for high school and community colleges, NGOs, and youth organizations.” Source:

For example “What’s your calling?” can be used in ta class on vocations. While it gives a secular perspective, there are elements that resonate with a Catholic perspective and can be woven into a class on this topic.
