Join us for an evening celebrating The Dinner Party & The People’s Supper, and a chance to learn what's next.

About this Event

ABOUT THE EVENT

Join us for a fundraiser to support the work of The Dinner Party and The People’s Supper, two groundbreaking efforts to build real community and connection across difference and to do it at scale. There you’ll have the chance to talk with co-founders Lennon Flowers and Carla Fernandez about what we’ve learned and what’s ahead.

Drinks and hearty hors d’oeuvres provided.

ABOUT US

The Dinner Party is a platform for grieving 20- and 30-somethings to find peer community, and build lasting relationships. We screen, train and support a growing network of peer hosts, and connect them to 12-15 people nearby, who share a similar age and loss experience. Altogether, we’ve connected 9,000+ peers to one another. Today, more than 4,000 active members gather bimonthly at 300+ local tables in over 100 cities and towns worldwide, including more than 80 tables in New York City alone.

On January 20, 2017, we helped launch The People’s Supper, which uses shared meals to build trust and connection among people of different identities and perspectives. Over the last three years, we’ve worked with the Mayor’s Office in Erie, PA, on a series of racial healing suppers, and with a group of leaders in education in Los Angeles, who operate in a highly competitive and politicized environment and feared that mistrust was inhibiting their ability to learn from one another. Altogether we’ve helped to power more than 1,500 suppers across the country, with partners including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Facebook, Righteous Persons Foundation, USC Center EDGE, Obama Foundation, and more. Our work is born of the popular adage that change moves at the speed of trust, and a simple question: What needs healing here?

And now, we’re out to apply the learnings and practices we’ve honed over the last six years to tackle social isolation at scale through the launch of a new parent nonprofit, working to help other organizations and peer networks create holistic, peer-driven communities of care, through a combination of tools, knowledge-sharing, and collaborative design.
