Our Working Groups
Groups Supporting the Whole
Within Coming to the Table, individuals have come together around particular areas of focus related to our Mission, Vision, Values, and Approach. Some groups come together on a short-term project, working together to complete a goal, while other groups continue to support ongoing focus’ within the organization.
Our Working Groups organize in order to:
- develop resources or plans of action
- meet a particular need or goal of Coming to the Table as a whole
- take deeper action on their topic of shared interest as pertains to the larger CTTT community
If you would like more information about any of the Groups, click on the group of interest below to contact them directly.
If you have ideas about a new Working Group focus you’d like to take action on, please contact us here.
Our Current Working Groups
Linked Descendants Working Group
Linked descendants want to know the truth about their ancestors, discover their connections, maybe even heal a bit of the wounded past.
Mindfulness Working Group
Our intention is to create a community practicing mindfulness together and providing encouragement to deepen love, compassion, and wisdom in our racially-wounded country.
Reparations Working Group
Coming To The Table believes that reparations can offer a way to breach our nation’s enormous racial divide by fully acknowledging and atoning for the harms of slavery and its aftermath.
Opportunities for Writers within CTTT
The Writers Group focuses primarily on informing group members when opportunities arise to submit stories about ending racism for blogs and books.
