Doing Our Own Work:
A Seminar for Anti-Racist White People

For 16 consecutive years, Doing Our Own Work has provided a unique and innovative context for white people who seek to deepen their commitment to confronting and challenging racism. Hundreds of people, from communities all across North America, have taken part in this intensive seminar. Offering more than 40 hours of “class time,” Doing Our Own Work equips white people with the analysis, skills, and tools needed to be more effective anti-racist allies with people of color and to help bring about institutional change. Doing Our Own Work is designed as a supplement to, not a substitute for, contexts where people of diverse races discuss and strategize together how racism can be challenged.

Doing Our Own Work is a program of Allies for Change, an organization providing anti-oppression education, training, and resources for individuals and organizations committed to social change.

For additional information and dates of upcoming seminars, see our calendar, e-mail Melanie Morrison.

Ann E. Flescher

Ann Ellen Flescher

(1958 – 2008)

Ann E. Flescher’s deep and abiding passion for justice can best be summed up in the Hebrew phrase tikkun olam – repair of the world. She worked for 16 years as a social worker, counselor, and administrator at the Michigan State University Counseling Center. For more than a decade, Ann was also intimately involved in the Doing Our Own Work anti-racism seminar for white allies, first as a participant and then as a facilitator and trainer. In addition to co-facilitating the Doing Our Own Work seminars, she helped to design and lead the first Doing Our Own Work Training of Facilitators program in 2003. In May of 2008, Ann died of cancer at the age of 49, but her unceasing passion for justice lives on in those of us who knew and loved her and in the graduates of Doing Our Own Work.
