2019 On The Table Philly Engages Region, Stimulates Action

On the Table Philly 2019 was an amazing day!


• Close to 6,000 participants
• Over 460 table conversations
• Region-wide participation in seven counties: Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania, as well as Burlington and Camden in South Jersey


Our thanks to all who hosted and participated!


People gathered in venues from offices, to homes, to libraries, restaurants and nonprofits to talk about what’s key to community.


Here’s some of what they had to say about their experiences in email and on social media:



“An important conversation about the future of our workforce.”


“A robust discussion around affordable accessibility to higher education.”


“A lively and interesting conversation in which we came up with some really good ideas around how to reach out to the community to talk about the census.”


“A great conversation about mental health.”


“We had 20 participants from seven different countries. Thank you so much for this opportunity!”
