“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” 
― Carl Gustav Jung


what we do

We are an eclectic group of people from different backgrounds and with different belief systems who have been coming together in Austin, TX for over a year to break bread and have interesting discussions over yummy meals! We sometimes joke that we only agree on three things: The Importance of Free Speech, The Importance of Civility in Dialogue, and The Importance of Cumin. 

We are made up of Clinton voters, Trump voters, non-voters, third party voters, Evangelicals, Atheists, Liberals, Conservatives, Libertarians, Centrists and everyone in between. All are welcome, as long as you are coming to engage in good faith with people who may disagree with you, in the interest of understanding one another better.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion... Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them...he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
— John Stuart Mill
