Partner Spotlight: Ready to Find Common Ground? Bring it to Your Table
Ready to Find Common Ground?
Bring it to Your Table
by Julie Winokur
Last year I came to the ADP/TDC national meeting excited about finally finding people, who like me, were tired of divisive politics. This year, I’m even more enthusiastic as I officially roll out our toolkit and campus-wide launch for Bring It to The Table.
My session takes place Friday, June 5 @ 1:45 p.m. in Studio 9.
What started as a challenge from my teenage son to become more politically tolerant, morphed into a documentary film which then transformed into an interactive experience that engages citizens in reclaiming civil discourse. The goal of Bring It to The Table is not to change anyone’s political affiliation or belief system, but to empower students to take an active role in breaking down hyper-partisanship at the ground level, citizen-to-citizen. We would like to see Bring It to The Table events take place on ADP, TDC and NASPA campuses across the country as a resounding affirmation that students want and need their voices heard.
NEW THIS YEAR – TOOLKIT AND MOBILE APP
Our 40-minute film provides an exciting event for campus organizers to convene students and their community in a dynamic, innovative format. The film is followed by live Table Talks where audience members engage in civil discourse. Our new toolkit offers a roadmap on how to implement and adapt what we’ve found to be successful. We have also developed a mobile app that turns audience members into active participants while collecting data to measure audience impact. As I return to ADP this year I am excited to provide schools with their own toolkit for campus activities, including a DVD and our web-based mobile app with a personalized access code.
Special Offer: We will give 25% off the DVD and toolkit for ADP/TDC/NASPA members now through September 2015.
