We Have the Force opens with the letters of the alphabet appearing sequentially as the youths link each letter with activities surrounding drug use: A is for AIDS, B is for Body Bags, C is for Crack, etc. A story animated with paper dolls shows the way drug dealing is a fact of life in some neighborhoods, and too often the only employment available. The offers of television advertising promoting alcohol, sex, and “just say no” are rebuked by the kids, who name a list of things they want to “say yes” to, including jobs, food, good teachers and schools, health care, drug treatment programs, and a media that treats all people equally.
