On The table conversations

Powerful Things Happen When People Come Together

When we come together to talk with, listen to, and learn from each other, we have the power to improve the quality of life for everyone. And that’s what On the Table is all about.

On October 1, 2020, we brought together hundreds of community members for virtual On the Table conversations. We discussed the critical issues impacting our region, and considered ways to work together to make our communities stronger. Watch the video below to learn more.

 

This WDVM segment highlights how VoicesDMV On the Table conversations brought together residents throughout the DMV area both online and in small, face-to-face groups to talk about ideas for improving their communities.

 

Thank you to our Superhosts!

We were proud to partner with American University as a Superhost and our lead outreach partner, along Leadership Greater Washington, Venture Philanthropy Partners, and our VoicesDMV Steering Committee.

Check out our discussion guides to help inform your conversation, and our resources and tools for hosts.

option #1: host a conversation using voicesdmv conversation platform

Virtual discussions can be convened through The Community Foundation’s interactive online platform, All Sides Connect, which includes easy-to-use built-in discussion guides.


OPTION #2: HOST YOUR OWN conversation

You can also host a virtual discussion through another preferred video conference tool - or, convene a face-to-face conversation using proper social distancing at your home, office, community center, or another location.
