The family table. It’s one of the most iconic and beloved things we remember from our childhood. Dinner after all, is meant to be a time for gathering — a time not only to enjoy a nice meal, but to also appreciate one another’s company.
Given the heightened state of tension and acrimony in our world today, the dinner table would be a great place to start the healing process. What better venue to bring people together to eat, chat, share, connect and unite?
A few wise folks have just that in mind, in their effort to “make America dinner again.”
Can Dinner Heal a Divided Country?
Make America Dinner Again wants to bring the country back together, one dinner at a time
What’s a MADA?
It is no secret that the results of the 2016 election have highlighted great divides in opinion, whether between family, neighbors, or perfect strangers. In an attempt to build understanding and move forward together, we’d like to invite people to sit down and have dinner. There are many avenues to protest, to donate, to fight, to be heard; Make America Dinner Again is an avenue to listen.
These small dinners consist of respectful conversation, guided activities, and delicious food shared among 6-10 guests who have differing political viewpoints, and our country’s best interests at heart.
Take a few minutes to watch MADA’s video…you’ll be glad you did.
What a fantastic idea. A return to civility is long overdue and a friendly, social dinner is the ideal place to start. Please take some time to learn more about MADA, as their mission and goals are truly inspiring.
