In order to be efficient and effective, city government must be accessible, accountable, and close to the citizens and neighborhoods it serves. On the Table is a remarkable opportunity to broaden the civic conversation by bringing together individuals and stakeholders who may not otherwise interact with each other. Through meaningful dialogues such as the ones facilitated through this event, our ability to work together, understand each other, and connect with one another is further strengthened. By reinforcing our civic fabric, building new connections, and heightening our level of engagement with one another through this event, we can collectively move our city forward and provide opportunity for all.
