Resetting the Table (RTT) is dedicated to strengthening democracy by building collaborative deliberation across political siloes in American life. We equip community leaders with tools and skills to transform political fault-lines within and across their communities.
RTT has developed one of the most celebrated frameworks for transformative communication across political divides in the country. Forged in the minefield surrounding disagreements on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, RTT has designed a large and growing toolkit of processes, including communication skill-building workshops, facilitated community dialogues, multi-perspective educational resources, and decision-making forums. To date, RTT programs have directly reached more than 42,000 participants, many of them directors of national and regional community organizations, journalists, clergy, educators, and campus professionals positioned to reach tens of thousands more. With decades of combined expertise in mediation and facilitation, RTT has opened unprecedented communication among divergent, influential leaders – many entering the room alienated and mutually dismissive – never imagining they would be in a room together, let alone walking away with new insight, shared purpose, and even changed minds.
