"Your Voice Matters" - For the last 3 years, the Chicago Community Trust has hosted an annual forum designed to elevate civic conversation, foster new relationships and inspire action, called On The Table. Individuals and organizations sign up to host a conversation and a meal, and invite their friends and neighbors to participate in the dialogue.
I sat down with Maritza Bandera, the Manager of Civic Engagement and Partnerships for the Chicago Community Trust, to learn more about the One The Table initiative. We talked about some of the ways ‘elevating the conversation’ is difficult, some of the geographic and cultural challenges we face in Chicago, and how what is learned from these conversations affects the work of the CCT.
Join or host one of the upcoming #OnTheTable2017 conversations on Tuesday, May 16th.
