Bonner Scholars Program to host Bring It to the Table

Lindsey Wilson College's Bonner Scholars Program will be hosting Bring it to The Table, a documentary film screening and discussion over the film October 5 at 6pmCT and October 17 at 7pmCT in the Norma & Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, 402 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia.

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--even amongst friends and family. Bring it to The Table is a documentary film and community engagement campaign aimed at engaging students in civic action and empowering them to take an active role in breaking down hyper-partisanship. LWC joins colleges and universities across the country that will be screening the film and hosting the interactive events this fall.

"Everyone who participates in Bring It to The Table is challenged to examine their own beliefs and take responsibility for healing the divide that pits citizen against citizen, family member against family member," says Executive Director of Talking Eyes Media, Julie Winokur. "The film and discussion inspire students to actively engage in meaningful conversations and to learn to listen to people they don't agree with rather than attacking, or silencing, diverse opinions."

Talking Eyes Media (TEM) launched Bring it to The Table to reclaim the rightful place of healthy discourse by encouraging people to listen to each other and collaboratively move towards action. The Bring it to The Table documentary film is one component of the interactive campaign. The screening will be followed by an in depth discussion on the film and it's underlying themes. Audience members will be encouraged to explore their own belief systems while listening to the complex reasoning behind their fellow citizens' ideas.
