Decatur Dinners

 100 DINNERs

One night

A safe place to be brave

Building Community


 Share a meal and Let’s talk about race and Equity.


Neighbors will

sit down, share


and talk honestly

to learn

what divides us

and what brings us together in the City of Decatur.

Please join us August 25th!  Be one of 1,000 people gathered in groups of 10-20, all showing up in Decatur on one night to have courageous conversations in homes,…places of worship, schools and local restaurants. We are inviting youth, parents and community members to share stories and make connections with others who want to see Decatur bridge its racial divides.


Each dinner has a Decatur based performance of a short play about race and equity by with Out of Hand Theater, in every room, and a facilitated conversation at every dinner table.  

The community "Decatur Dinners" will occur on Sunday, AUGUST 25th, 2019 from 5-8PM in homes and places where we live, work, play and worship.
