WATCH: In this video, Love Your Neighbor project co-founder Erika McCalpine and panelist Marcus LeGrand talk about the project:
McCalpine was the Source's 2019 Woman of the Year, recognized for her activism in the community, and later collaborated with the Source on this new project. In February 2020, Love Your Neighbor held its first event, which included a panel of people of color sharing their stories and answering live questions from a packed house at At Liberty Arts Collaborative in downtown Bend. In June 2020, as the pandemic loomed, and as protests against the death of George Floyd continued, Love Your Neighbor held its second event, live-streamed for an audience of hundreds.
