We invited UGA students and organizations to participate in an intersectional dialogue called a Jeffersonian Dinner. The conversation focused on the question: "What is progress?" The goal was to bring together a variety of individuals and groups that do not regularly interact. With free food and free entrance, we hoped to create a space for personal and policy-related conversations on how we can work together on social, economic, and environmental issues in 2017 and beyond.
Here are the rules of the game:
1) Get out of your comfort zone and sit with people you have not met. (Each table seats 8 people.)
2) You may not speak a second time unless everyone at your table has spoken once.
3) Eat well and play well.
The meeting was a success with over 100 UGA students from various ideological backgrounds discussing the notion of progress. We plan to have more Jeffersonian Dinners in the future!
