Find Your Local Group
The most important aspect of the Coming to the Table Approach is actually doing the transformative work of undoing racism in the community where you live. There are currently more than 40 CTTT Local Affiliate Groups in 19 states across the United States (most are listed below). CTTT encourages and supports the establishment of such groups to provide spaces and opportunities for people to meet regularly together, in our communities, for truth-telling, deep dialogue, building relationships, healing, and taking action to dismantle inequitable systems and structures based on “race.” If you’d like to speak with someone from any of the existing local groups, you can reach out to them directly from their Local Group’s page. Scroll down for the listings and links.

First, the National Virtual Affiliate Group (NVAG) typically meets online the first Saturday of each month. Everyone gathers together at the beginning to check-in and to hear about that month’s topic. Then participants are placed into smaller breakout groups for deep discussions around truth-telling, deep dialogue, building relationships, healing, and taking action to dismantle inequitable systems and structures based on “race.” A second, optional breakout, is then available in Affinity spaces. Questions? To learn more, and/or to join the NVAG… Click Here and complete the contact form on that page.
Second, in response to the Covid pandemic, local groups began meeting via Zoom. Many plan to continue indefinitely and invite YOU to join them. Different groups have different meeting days and times, different topics, different approaches to their gatherings.
