The goal isn’t to change someone’s mind, but rather to get people thinking more deeply about where their beliefs come from and, in turn, give the questioner a more well-rounded perspective of opposing views.
— Colby Itkowitz, Washington Post

host a screening & Live Table Talk workshop with filmmaker julie winokur

Each of us plays a role in reclaiming the spirit of democracy. What started with one woman's revelation is now sparking a movement of citizens, students, businesses, and community organizations who are leading the charge for civil discourse. 

By helping to break down political stereotypes and prejudice, Bring It to The Table aims to elevate our national discourse and contribute to a more civil society where we all become better informed citizens.

Universities, citizen action groups, businesses, and local political and community organizations can bring Julie Winokur and Bring It to their communities. These events create an opportunity for audience members to explore their political beliefs, learn to listen well, engage in civil political debate, and talk across party lines about issues that matter to them.

Bring It To The Table is a unique opportunity to showcase the political divide in America, and what Americans can do to try and bridge the gap. The documentary was engaging and eye-opening, and Julie facilitates the table talks in a manner that is optimistic, adaptable, and inquisitive. College students everywhere should get the opportunity to watch the documentary and experience Julie’s table talks.
— Matt Miller, Texas Christian University, Class of 2016
