A Seat at the Table – Winter 2018
A Seat at the Table has completed its Fall 2017 programming. We’re taking a little break to review our format, goals, and check-in with ourselves and others to ensure A Seat at the Table is doing what we set out to do. Check back with us in early 2018!
An initiative of Treehouse Institute led by Chanel Lewis (pictured right), A Seat at the Table aims to engage the community in having difficult discussions and conversations around entangled and complex subjects — race + privilege; sex, gender and identity; and climate change — through weekly meet-ups that will culminate in a family-style dinner. With 2017 looking and feeling as exclusive and divisive as 2016, it is important we all pull up to the table—baggage and all—and continue to build and strengthen a more empathetic, compassionate, and understanding community.
Looking For Resources?
We believe that it takes us all to build and strengthen a more empathetic, compassionate, and understanding community and invite you to host conversations in your home, office, favorite coffee shop or brewery. Feel free to use our conversation guides, which are available through creative commons licensing. This means they are free to you as long as you don’t try to make money off them, don’t change them for distribution, and give us a little nod.
As you use them, we’d really appreciate hearing how your conversations go. And if there are things you try that work well, in addition to what we’ve provided in these guides, we’d love to hear about that too.
