Service Description

Join Reverend Willard Bass & Sydney Hughes-McGee on the third Thursday of every month (unless otherwise noted) online between 6:30 and 8:00 pm. This monthly community meeting space is open to all who share the value of dismantling personal, cultural and institutional racism in Winston-Salem and beyond. This group grew out of HOPE TANK W-S which formed to study and practice nonviolent social change. It was formally named “Communicating Effectively about Racism”. Meetings may include: time to review the “wall of history” and discuss past and current events, quiet time for reflection and centering, looking together at a principle from nonviolent teachings, and discussion of what is coming up for members of the group as they work to dismantle white supremacy.  We invite you to bring stories from your own experiences to share, or to just come ready to work with whatever emerges in the group.   This is a space for coming together across lines of racial difference as well as differences in age, experience, religious/spiritual beliefs and political affiliation. The only requirements are a willingness to engage in honest and respectful conversation. This is a donation based offering. To sustain this program, please consider giving a donation of any amount to Freedom Tree at Institute for Dismantling Racism at If you are unable to make a donation at this time, please join us anyway!
