Conservative politician, liberal activist, homeless veteran, single mother, Hollywood actress, dictator etc.). Instructions will be given for each participant to choose 5 people from the list who they would invite to a dinner party and 5 people they would not invite. Participants will then be given the opportunity to discuss in a group who they decided to invite/not invite and why.
