"It isn't enough to talk about peace.
One must believe in it.
And it isn't enough to believe in it.
Once must work at it."

Eleanor Roosevelt

Rita's Dept. of Peace House Party

Peace Dove Symbol D-52's Outreach Chair, Rita, Shares her House Party Tips

Click here to download Rita's sample invitation. Please customize for your party.

Below our some ideas from Rita, based on her last House Party:

  1. have an event you will enjoy
  2. invite people you feel safe having at your home:
    neighbors you know, friends, coworkers and ask them all to invite their friends
  3. a short open house would be good so those who just want to learn can come and leave - I set mine too long and spent a lot of time waiting (2 hours good, 5 way too much)
  4. add a pot luck for those who want a social even t- most of those who attended this were friends and DOP members
  5. send a flyer/invite around
  6. attach material to flyer about DOP so people learn about it even if they don't come
  7. have materials available and items for sale
  8. I had a poster discussing various issues - put snacks near the poster/materials
  9. Have a video regarding the DOP to show at various intervals
  10. People eat and drink less than I thought so have things you will consume later.
  11. Enjoy the event !

NOTE: DOP/AFDOP informational video/DVDs are available for showing at your House Party. Please contact us at mno@afdop.org to borrow one.
