What we believe

We believe in the power of connecting on a deeper level with those inside and outside our normal networks.

We believe that exchanging stories and ideas can fuel movements.

We believe that we, as neighbors, have what it takes to make Charlotte-Mecklenburg a better community.

What it will look like

On The Table CLT is a community-wide civic engagement initiative. Each interaction will be a reflection of our diverse community. These mealtime dialogues can be sit-down, catered, potluck or brown bag. If you live, work or attend school in or near Charlotte-Mecklenburg, you can participate.

On The Table CLT is part of Knight Foundation’s national replication of the On The Table civic engagement initiative pioneered by The Chicago Community Trust.
