Host a Screening

 NIOT Stories of action in the face of hate help one town learn from another. Our films help provide a way for people to convene and open up the discussion about how to stand up to hate together. After the screening, open a discussion about how to support community members who are targeted by hate, racism, and intolerance in the community and plan what you can do next. This event can be a launch pad for your ongoing activity.
