We’ve got some more time left with Farron, but it has become clear to me that I (and that we we white people) need more support and guidance as we get clear about our work. To be transparent with the fundraising that I’ve started, so I can hire Farron for another ten hours, I’ve set up a gofundme. I’m trying to raise $2,000. If you would like to support this work but don’t want to use gofundme, please feel free to email me at dwsgroups @ grantwinners.net and I will give you my mailing address or paypal or cashapp or venmo account information (I will then log the donation on the gofundme).
Our group is building trust together and beginning to face some stickier questions. In particular, how is white supremacy culture showing up in our group? I saw racism show up in our group and I didn’t say anything when I saw it, for example. As a group, we will be working through these more challenging issues while also supporting each other in the work we are doing “out there” in the wider world.
Building community… it’s not my strong suit, but it’s turning out to be really, really important.
