Here are some outcomes from On The Table 2016:

  • On The Table 2016 engaged 55,000 individuals through 3,500 conversations
  • 58% of participants who responded to the post-survey are dissatisfied with the way things are going in their communities
  • 81% of participants who responded to the post-survey believe they have some or a great deal of power in bringing about change
  • 27% of participants who responded to the post-survey give time, talent, and treasure to equity and social inclusion

Why should you participate?
The act of people coming together to discuss issues that matter to them most has never been more important. Progress will only result when residents and organizations collaborate to make contributions that add up to a greater solution. On the Table will connect individuals and communities of diverse perspectives and backgrounds to do just that.
