YOUR ROLE AS HOST
As a host, your main role is setting a date, a time and location for strangers and friends to gather together over food to talk about the Beloved Community, & follow our simple Civic Dinners format:
Once you arrive at the dinner, you are a guest like everyone else. The Dinner Guide is designed to work without a moderator and has prompts and questions that guide the conversation, with one person speaking at a time. The “House Rules” should help keep people on the same page about how to have an engaging, insightful, and inclusive conversation.
After the dinner, your responsibilities as a host end, although you can choose to stay involved with your group. Civic Dinners will follow up with guests via email asking for feedback on the dinner conversation and providing a menu of actions which they can take. All dinner hosts and guests from the #BelovedCommunity conversation will be invited to join a Facebook community to continue the conversation and work on actions together. Civic Dinners will follow up with you about your host experience and learn how to make an even better experience.
Finally, after 100 days of dinners, we will share our report of a common vision for the beloved community and 101 collective ideas for how to bring to life Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of the beloved community.
