The Opportunity: A Film and Narrative Model for Action to Stop Hate 

About the Film: Repairing the World documents a community’s response to hate and antisemitism in the aftermath of the assault on three congregations at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. The lives of eleven people were taken on October 27, 2018 in the deadliest antisemitic attack in U.S. history. As the Jewish community experiences tremendous grief, they meet fear with courage as they confront hate and strengthen the connections they have been building for years. Against the backdrop of a tumultuous period in the country, a traumatized community works to heal as they experience the impact and dangers of antisemitism, racism, hate speech, and gun violence. Through the voices of survivors, family members, diverse Pittsburgh residents and leaders, the film shows the powerful display of unity in a moment of crisis, the resilience of a vibrant city, and a community working together to understand what it means to be "Stronger than Hate."

In partnership with public media stations, Jewish organizations, other faith groups, educators, civic and civil right groups, Not In Our Town will launch a multi-year, education and community engagement campaign to spread Pittsburgh's powerful response to hate with communities across the U.S. and around the world. The Repairing the World materials and outreach campaign are designed to leave communities with long-lasting resources and relationships that will strengthen local capacity to respond to and prevent acts of hate, antisemitism, racism, anti-immigrant bias and all forms of bigotry.

About Not In Our Town: Repairing the World is produced and presented by Not In Our Town (NIOT) and the nonprofit production company The Working Group. Launched by a PBS film campaign in 1995 about people standing up to hate and antisemitism in Billings, MT, NIOT produces high impact films and media, and serves a network of hundreds of NIOT groups, schools and communities across the country working to stop hate and build safe, inclusive communities for all. For over two decades, NIOT has leveraged film as a potent vehicle to encourage civic participation and inspire individuals to create positive change. Our films have been seen by millions of viewers and continue to be presented in community events across the country to spark discussion about how to prevent hate and build inclusion.
