Groundwork is a white anti-racist collective working to dismantle white supremacy and achieve racial justice in our communities. We are committed to doing work against racism in our daily lives from the heart, with dignity, integrity, and radical honesty. Groundwork formed after a nine week anti-racism workshop in the fall of 2004 and we have consistently had 8-15 members.
Our Goals are:
(1) Internal Support and Education: Support one another through self-education, reflection, and sharing our experiences of working against racism in our daily lives. Build our confidence, leadership, and analysis through this ongoing process.
(2) Organizing for Racial Justice: Create and sustain accountable relationships with groups that prioritize racial justice and are led by people of color. Some organizations we currently support include Freedom Inc, Voces de la Frontera, Dignidad Sin Fronteras and Operation Welcome Home.
3) Community Education: Work with other white people to dismantle white supremacy and all systems of oppression within our circles of influence, particularly within movements for social justice.
