Most importantly however, are that these meaningful conversations continue on through the help of all of us. Coca-Cola’s goal with Together We Must: The Conversation is to encourage everyone to bring the discussion back to their own communities with friends, family, and colleagues as part of the #TogetherWeMust movement.  From Bridging the Racial Divide, to Allyship to Understanding Race, consumers are welcome to learn how to host their own intimate events in order to foster productive, meaningful and actionable conversations about race.

The National Center for Civil & Human Rights, Civic Dinners and Equitable Dinners is hoping these grassroots conversations will educate, provoke, and inspire people to connect and take action, while creating a more inclusive world where everyone feels invited and engaged in co-creating a better future.
