About this event

Setting The Table is a monthly gathering to learn, converse, and break bread around an important issue.

 

Setting The Table is a monthly gathering to learn, converse, and break bread around an important issue — presented by Bridgeliner, WeWork, and Every Child Oregon.

 

This month's theme: Creating a Better Tomorrow for Portland's Youth.

 

Here in Portland, our kids are fighting climate change, standing up to gun violence, designing solutions to homelessness, and launching their own nonprofits.

 

They’re building a better tomorrow for themselves in many ways. So how can we help?

 

Join us on Thursday, August 15 to discuss how Portlanders can support the young people in our city — and meet some of the incredible people who do that work every day.

 

We’ll kick things off with a panel discussion, then break out for dinner with friends and strangers (aka soon-to-be friends) who are interested in tackling this community challenge just like you.

 

6:00 p.m. – Doors open

 

6:20 p.m. – Panel discussion (Panelists coming soon)

 

7:30 p.m. – Dinner conversation

 

8:30 p.m. – Dessert

 

We want to thank our partner WeWork for providing the space, meal, and drinks for us all, and to Every Child Oregon for sponsoring our solutions-focused series on Oregon’s foster care system.

FYI, if you’re interested in becoming a foster parent — or just learning how you can get involved — the team from Every Child Oregon will be on hand to share information and help you get started.
