Love Your Neighbor - Virtual Forum

Explore the racial unrest underway across the U.S. with a panel of Central Oregonians of color at this Love Your Neighbor forum.

Members of the panel will share their perspectives on race relations, and include audience participation to look at ways to advance racial justice locally and nationally.

The program will be moderated by OSU-Cascades business instructor Erika McCalpine. McCalpine has shared her experiences as a Black woman living in Bend at local civic events. She was awarded the 2020 OSU Frances Dancy Hooks Award for building bridges across cultures and showing courage in promoting diversity.

Panelists include:

  • Judith Sadora, a wilderness therapist with Evoke Therapy Programs at Cascades who works with adolescent boys of color.
  • Dalton Miller-Jones, a former Oregon higher education leader and researcher whose work focuses on the impact of culture on development and learning for African American and Indigenous First Nations children.
  • Marcus LeGrand, a college and career success coach with Central Oregon Community College.
  • Rob Garrott, a senior content manager for 3D visualization with LinkedIn Learning.

The forum will be presented on Facebook Live and YouTube. Following registration, participants will receive an email with instructions for joining the presentation.

The event is sponsored by Love Your Neighbor, Source Weekly, Evoke Therapy Programs, Embrace Bend, and the OSU-Cascades Laboratory for the American Conversation.

Love Your Neighbor is a grassroots program founded by Erika McCalpine, who leads the business administration program at Oregon State University - Cascades and Nicole Vulcan, editor of the Source Weekly. The program encourages community members to appreciate and accept fellow residents from diverse backgrounds.
