@home will be broadcast on public television stations in 35 states starting March 25th! The documentary is being featured on WORLD Channel programs. Help us spread the word via social media to your communities!
The point of this movie is to create a conversation on people experiencing homelessness and solutions to help them. If you live in one of those communities and are a make-things-happen type person, it would be awesome if you (or a team) would start promoting the PBS airing and make some kind of an event happen. If you want to make it a fundraiser, PLEASE PICK A LOCAL HOMELESS SERVICES to benefit. It’s important we fight homelessness at a local level. Plus, supporting a local homeless services would just be a better fit for any local event.
If you’re a homeless services and @home is playing in your area, you may want to host a screening at your facility. Be creative, have fun, and share share share on social media!
We are hoping to create buzz and engagement across the viewing markets and have prepared some tools to help start the conversation, begin a dialogue, and encourage local viewers to sound the @home call!
- Mark, the subject of the film has created a great PhotoShop template to use to make graphics. You just have to change out the city, station and times. If you are hosting an event of course feel free to use to promote that event!
- Deb Brown was wonderful enough to craft and post a press release. Feel free to use or lift copy as needed. If you’re hosting a local event please use yourself or a spokesperson as media contact.
- Our hashtag is #AtHomePBS - promote on Twitter with your local viewing time and station!
- Seattle University created a discussion guide for the film that is in PDF. Feel free to print and use as discussion fodder for your screening and within your community.
