What is On the Table
On the Table brings people together across the Region to break bread and engage in conversation about ways to improve our communities. Anyone can host a conversation with as few as 6 people. Guests discuss community challenges and brainstorm solutions. The conversation may lead to projects that people or organizations in your community can do.

Legacy Foundation’s On the Table conversations are part of a national initiative funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. On the Table replicates an annual civic engagement initiative of the same name developed by The Chicago Community Trust in 2014. Support for On the Table advances Knight Foundation’s work to help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of civic engagement. Knight Foundation believes that successful communities are equitable, inclusive and participatory.
