What is At the Table Colorado?

Never doubt that a group of thoughtful, committed individuals can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

Margaret Mead

What is At the Table Colorado?

At the Table Colorado (ATTC) brings people from all walks of life together, to participate in a series of free community-wide conversations about what makes their neighborhoods/communities/regions great and what can be done to make them even better — more sustainable, stronger and vibrant while educating people on civic and social issues.

Launched by the Chicago Community Trust, in 2014, as On the Table, the Table concept has become a national movement, inspiring grassroots conversations across the country in cities such as: The Big Table, Columbus OH; The Longest Table, Tallahassee FL and On the Table, Lexington KY. At the Table Colorado is the first statewide Table conversation and the first in the Rocky Mountain region.

How it works:

Volunteers throughout each neighborhood/community/region will Host conversations with 8 to 10 individuals over a meal or coffee. Groups can Host several Tables simultaneously or one at a time.  Anyone can Host a Table and choose a topic for discussion, really, anyone!

Who participates:

Everyone and anyone — neighborhood associations, senior citizens, libraries, businesses, students, civic groups, schools, houses of worship, refugees, young professionals, the homeless population and nonprofits; everyone is welcome…literally, everyone!

What happens afterwards:

Participants will be invited to take a survey to help gain a deeper understanding about the content of their conversations, including issues discussed, ideas and suggestions for improvement and intended actions.


Statewide At the Table Colorado conversations take place each April and September. Check our website for updates.
