    What are the next steps to sustain your momentum after attending an NIOT event?

    1. Make Your Values Visible: 
    Take the Pledge and  share it with your friends, family and networks: print it, post it, make it visible so that it can inspire you and others. Here is a poster you may print and display it in your window, school, business, workplace.

    2. Talk It Out: 
    Sit down and have a conversation with your children, family and friends. Practice how to respond when you hear an offensive remark. Do it again - don't let this be a one time conversation.

    3. Start a Not In Our Town Group or connect with a group in your community:
    Host a screening of a Not In Our Town film to begin the conversation about who is vulnerable to hate and how to do something about it. Find a venue in your neighborhood, faith organization, yoga studio or school.

    Films we suggest you start with:
    For Communities:

    • Manhattan Beach
    • Light in the Darkness

    For Schools:

    • Shajee's Story: Middle School Students Learn About Islam
    • Students Map Bully Zones to Create a Safer School

    NIOT's resources are at your disposal: our staff, our video library and many more ideas at niot.org.
