The citizen volunteers of the Village's Community Relations Commission seek Oak Parkers willing to open their homes to residents of diverse backgrounds for an evening of dinner and candid dialogue about race, diversity and inclusion.
An offshoot of the Jane Addams Hull House Association Center for Civil Society's Chicago Dinners Project, Oak Park's Dinner & Dialogue Project is based on the power of meaningful conversations and interactions to create true understanding of diversity and build a stronger sense of community.
The strategy behind the dinner project is its simplicity. Many residents rarely have an opportunity for honest conversations about diversity and other difficult subjects – even among their social and professional peers. Informal conversations within small, diverse groups can be a vital step in helping improve our Village’s cultural and human relations.
