Embrace Bend’s Do the Work Study Group is a space for White people and other dominant groups to explore race, racism, and White Supremacy without accidentally harming non-White or non-dominant groups in the process. We will facilitate discussion around a specific topic by journaling, sharing stories, and working through outside resources like books, articles, videos, etc. By being honest and vulnerable with one another, we will cultivate a space that acknowledges that mistakes WILL happen, but that these mistakes don’t make us evil, and that we will work together to grow and heal. Active participation in this group will empower each of us to re-enter our outside lives with a stronger ability to push for change here in Bend towards racial equity.
