Building Bridges Groundwork

We facilitate community trainings called Groundwork each month. Groundwork is a great starting place for folks new to Building Bridges and invested in deepening their journey of inclusion and equity.  These one-time sessions are provided in race-based affinity groups in order to center racial equity and growth.  Participating in a Groundwork session is a prerequisite for our cohort-based trainings that are delivered over a series of sessions – Liberated for BIPOC participants and Uprooted for white participants.

Groundwork uses a framework called the 4 I’s of Oppression to explore how layers of privilege and oppression contribute to systemic oppression as a whole. During the session, participants will dialogue, write, and reflect on the ways that oppression has played out according to their racial identities.
