ABOUT THE DINNER PARTY:
The Dinner Party is a community of mostly 20- and 30- somethings who’ve each experienced significant loss. We get together over potluck dinners to talk about the ways in which it continues to affect our lives and how to thrive in #lifeafterloss. Our mission is to transform life after loss from an isolating experience into one marked by community support, candid conversation, and forward movement. www.thedinnerparty.org.
We are teaming up with Faith Matters Network, a network of over 500 faith-rooted social justice leaders working to transform their communities across the southeast, and the anti-harassment powerhouse, Hollaback!, to lead a campaign we're calling #100days100dinners. From MLK Day through the first 100 days of the new Administration, we’ll host 100 potluck dinners, both large-scale and small-scale, in rural and urban spaces nationwide.
The first set of dinners will focus on bringing together those that share a common identity, as well as the vocabulary to name and share where it hurts. In the second phase of dinners, “Where Do We Go from Here?”, we’ll create spaces for healing across lines of difference among people who desire real understanding, with the goal of expanding our circles of concern. Our hope is that by creating safe spaces (something The Dinner Party has lots of experience with) for people to connect, collective healing will happen and real dialogue across the aisle can begin.
