The City of Evanston’s Human Relations Commission is organizing a series of community dinners where residents can discuss topics of community importance, and share their experiences and ideas.

The “Table Talk” dinners will be held in the homes of Evanston residents and the conversation will be facilitated by a City staff member.

The goal of this free program is to build relationships among diverse groups of residents who have not previously met.

The first Table Talk will take place on Jan. 18, Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Residents are invited to sign up to host or attend a dinner by contacting Oscar Murillo at omurillo@cityofevanston.org or 847-448-8103.
