promotes change one person at a time in the company of allies and strangers through a storythat reveals the way hate can hijack our humanity. It offers us inspiration to overcome hate through connectinghearts and minds. The following guidelines are aimed to provide facilitators of the national campaign with toolsfor deep dialogue. We designed these guidelines to help facilitators steward personal reflections anddiscussions that will move people through examining the impact of watching DWF and invite everyone toimagine a better world. The overall goal is to build community through each dialogue, and the proposedactivities reflect an emphasis on community-building rather than debriefing the content of the film.The following structure and activities for your deep community dialogue are meant to be guides to be appliedflexibly. Watch the film beforehand and decide which suggested dialogue activity to use for your dialogue. Werecognize each dialogue deserves to have its own life. The best facilitation comes from having experiencedleaders who are comfortable and confident in a plan they execute. As such, please think about how you canintegrate these suggestions into the best practices and experiences you possess. We do not want you to lead astandardized dialogue through any rigid application of these suggestions. The entire program will run between2 hours and 2 and 1/2 hours.Be sure to join us for our national teleconference training for campaign hosts on
