Civic Thursdays: "Bring It to the Table" Screening

October 11, 2018
12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

NYIT Auditorium on Broadway
New York, NY

Stop bickering about politics. Instead, examine your own assumptions and engage in civil discourse to help move our democracy forward!

Bring it to the Table, organized by filmmaker and political activist Julie Winokur, invites members of the NYIT community to discuss their political views and help others understand where they are coming from. As part of the event, Winokur will screen segments of her documentary, Bring it to the Table, and lead an activity for attendees to share their ideas and get to the root of their beliefs.

Watch Winokur’s full documentary on Kanopy (login with NYIT ID).

Critical thought and civic participation are essential to being an educated person of the 21st century. Join us in raising awareness for several issues of importance, one Thursday at a time. This semester, we will focus heavily on the midterm elections:

  • September 27: Voting Rights – 16 West, 11th Floor
  • October 11: Bring It to the Table movie screening – Auditorium on Broadway
  • October 25: Midterm Elections
  • November 8: World Hunger
