DECATUR DINNERS

STARTING THE WORK OF RACIAL HEALING...BY BUILDING COMMUNITY

A safe place to be brave. Neighbors will sit down, share stories and talk about what divides us and what brings us together in the city of Decatur.

Please join us Sunday, August 25th for this first in the nation event as we have 100 dinners in one night in homes, community centers, restaurants and places of worship. We’re inviting youth, parents and community members to share stories and make connections with others who want to see Decatur bridge its racial divides.. and we need your voice at the table!

Each dinner will begin with a live performance-based piece presented by Out of Hand Theater to provide a unique starting place for our dinner conversation.

Be a guest: we invite you to sign up as a guest and you will be placed at a dinner in Decatur. Guests bring sides, desserts or drinks. Each dinner will have a trained facilitator. Register above by clicking the green "Register" button.


Facilitators: One Small Change and Both And Partners
