"The 'On the Table' event that PCDC was a part of last May highlighted the diverse
narratives and needs of our community. Folks spoke to us and to each other

Countdown to "on the table philly"
On the Table Philly is a forum designed to elevate civic conversation, foster new relationships and create a unifying experience. In 2017, over 300 conversations were held across the region to highlight local and regional issues at the community level.
On November 8, 2018, Philadelphia area residents are invited to again gather in small groups across the region to share a meal and discuss the opportunities and issues we face in our communities.
These conversations can inspire new ways we can work together to make our communities stronger, safer and more dynamic.
