This film is meant to be an organizing tool, which means don’t just watch it alone! Watch it with a friend or with your family. Even better, host a screening at your congregation, union hall, school, or in your living room. To make it easy to plan an event, we’ve put together a screening organizer toolkit, complete with a tried-and-tested event planner checklist, promo posters, an educational hand-out, post-screening action steps, and more. Interested to know more about planning a screening? Join us for a webinar next week:
