These unprecedented times have challenged every single one of us. COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities. Thousands have lost their battle to COVID-19; individuals and families are struggling to afford basic necessities; and, all over the nation, people are being confronted with racism and social injustice.

What remains is our hope. We understand the healing power of conversation. On the Table brings people together around a common purpose and has always provided an opportunity for people to listen to understand each other and learn from others’ experiences.

Now more than ever, we need conversations. Join us as we kick off On the Table on October 12th, Indigenous Peoples Day, as part of Healing Illinois, a racial healing initiative designed to spark individual understanding and action for personal and interpersonal change, build capacity of organizations and institutions to address racial healing, and begin to create the conditions for greater racial equity in Illinois. To learn more visit dhs.state.il.us.

For more information about hosting an On the Table conversation see our Resources Page.
