Envision Bend brings diverse stakeholders together to educate, engage and empower all members of the Bend area community to have a voice in our city’s future. As a community convener, we are committed to engaging stakeholders across the full spectrum of our community in a nonpartisan, welcoming and collaborative manner to promote a healthy and livable city for all. We also commit to helping those who face barriers to participation to have equal access to our projects and processes so they can engage in meaningful ways.
Envision Bend commits to providing education and training so that our employees, board and volunteers have a better understanding of diversity, equity, inclusion and acceptance issues affecting the community we serve. We also commit to denouncing acts and symbols of discrimination, hate, racism and harassment.
