Screening of “Bring It To The Table” at NCDD 2014

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be screening the not-yet-released film “Bring It To The Table” at NCDD 2014 on Saturday night starting at 8:30 pm, and you’ll have the chance to talk with filmmaker Julie Winokur about her journey, and about how you might utilize the film.


Democracy is founded on robust dialogue, but somewhere along the line, politics replaced sex as the one thing in America we don’t discuss in mixed company. Bring it to the Table aims to reverse that trend. Filmmaker Julie Winokur traveled across the country with a small star-spangled table, inviting people to sit down and share the roots of their political beliefs.

Using humor and candor, Winokur explores the peaks and valleys of the American political psyche while she strives to bring people together about topics that typically tear us apart. The project, which has been featured on NPR and MSNBC, will launch a college campus campaign this fall.

Winokur will lead a discussion after the screening to see how to engage the NCDD community to use the film to spark conversations nationwide. Learn more about Bring It to The Table, and have your voice heard on how to use the materials moving forward.
