Lennon Flowers



Co-founder and Executive Director

The Dinner Party


Lennon Flowers is hell-bent on creating spaces where humans can be human, out of a belief that nothing is done in isolation, and that self-help only works in community. She is the Co-founder and Executive Director of The Dinner Party, a platform for grieving 20- and 30-somethings to find peer community and build lasting relationships. To date, they’ve connected 9,000+ peers to one another, and currently support more than 4,000 active members who gather bimonthly at nearly 300 local tables in more than 100 cities and towns worldwide. She is a co-founder of The People’s Supper, which uses shared meals to build trust and connection among people of different identities and perspectives. Since January 20, 2017, The People’s Supper has powered more than 1,500 suppers across the country, with partners including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Righteous Persons Foundation, USC Center EDGE, the Mayor’s Office in Erie, PA, the Obama Foundation, and more. She has written for CNN, Fast Company, YES!, Forbes, Open Democracy, and others. She is an Ashoka Fellow and an Aspen Ideas Scholar, and a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill. Backpacking, North Carolina barbecue, and a good dance party rank high on her list of favorite things.
