Bickerdike will partner with Chicago Community Trust once again to host and facilitate one of the many city-wide On the Table events! Our goal is to bring together our members and residents to discuss the important issues facing our communities.
Join Bickerdike's members and neighbors for an evening of dinner and lively conversation.
We will discuss the most urgent issues plaguing our communities and then gather ideas and solutions on how to confront them together.

About On the Table
The Chicago Community Trust’s On the Table is an annual forum designed to bring people together to make good things happen. Whether they gather in homes, offices, schools, libraries, restaurants or other spaces, they meet with others to share ideas and explore ways to improve our region. The results are exciting new relationships, elevated civic conversations and genuine pathways toward collaborative action – outcomes that make our communities more connected, resilient and resourceful.
Here, tens of thousands of people have engaged with On the Table since it was launched in 2014. Perhaps you’ve been a host or guest – or, maybe this year will mark your first participation. Either way, everyone is welcome. Everyone is an expert. Browse our planning tools for hosts, download and share our one-page fact sheet, and read real-life examples to inspire what you do after On the Table.
The success of On the Table in Chicago has inspired similar initiatives in more than 30 communities nationally and internationally through the On the Table Network.
Your perspective matters: No matter where in Chicago you are, you have lived experiences that shape your view of our city, its challenges and its opportunities. Bring your stories and opinions to an On the Table conversation. Share your ideas, listen to others, and then watch what happens. When people come together, their energy leads to action.
