Questions help us break down barriers, discover secrets, solve puzzles, and imagine new ways of doing things.

“The Community Table,” our bi-monthly community conversation series, plants civil conversations in the public sphere around issues of culture, diversity and public policy. Each month, explore a broad range of topics with authors and experts. Then, we’ll break into small groups for facilitated conversations that take a deeper dive into those topics. The series aims to engage the community in meaningful conversations about the important cultural and political questions of the moment and to foster understanding and respect for and across our differences.
