Mary Haverstick, a filmmaker from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has taken on the makers of TV series such as Amish Mafia, which exploit the Amish. She started a Facebook page called “Respect Amish,” and it grew rapidly into a movement. The local chamber of commerce, the council of churches, and a host of local politicians backed her challenge to the makers of Amish Mafia, which airs on the Discovery Channel. Amish scholar Donald Kraybill, who teaches at Elizabethtown College, says, “There’s no Amish mafia. There never was. The whole things is a fabrication in the minds of the producers” (NPR, August 24).
