HOST A SMALL GROUP
SHOWING AND DISCUSSION
CNN Airing of Award Winning film
9 PM (EST)
In April, Sowers of Justice Network helped sponsor a very successful screening and panel discussion of the new film Documented at the Village 8 Theaters.
We are being asked by Jose Antonio Vargas (see his note below) and Define American to consider hosting a viewing and discussion of the CNN airing of the film on June 29th for your network, family, friends, neighbors, churches, book clubs, or whatever.
During the post-film panel discussion in Louisville, Vargas said that the best way to move these issues forward is to listen to and tell personal stories about the struggles of those caught up in the dilemma of "defining American." That, in turn, will feed our movement to fix the unjust immigration system in the United States.
It's easy to sign up and host a screening and Define American will supply materials for discussion. All you need is a place to watch the CNN screening on June 29th, 9 PM EST.
Will you host a watch party in your home or community on June 29th?

FROM JOSE ANTONIO VARGAS:
This could be our biggest moment ever.
Not many organizations get to show their documentary film on a national stage -- let alone a film that shines a light on one of the most important civil and human rights conversations of our time: immigration.
And not many organizations get to show their film on CNN in prime time, June 29th at 9 PM ET, smack dab in the middle of possibly the biggest push for federal immigration reform in history!
With just a few weeks away, we're going "all in" at Define American -- but we need your help.
Will you host a watch party in your home or community on June 29th? (http://bit.ly/da-hostsignup)
Watching "Documented" live on CNN with a group of friends, active members of your community, or people who have misconceptions about immigration could be the perfect way to open up new dialogue and shift the conversation.
By hosting a watch party, you can be an active part of the live dialogue on CNN! These watch parties can also double as another kind of event, like a fundraiser for Define American or a local organization. It's your party -- so, it's up to you!
When you register your watch party, we'll reach out and send you a toolkit, free gear for your guests and direct assistance from our communications and engagement team!
Together, our voices and energy will get national attention and help shift the conversation around immigrants, so register your watch party today.
