Groundwork's 2019 Anti-Racism Education Workshop Registration Form
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our website. The information on our "Workshops for Racial Justice" page is out of date (except for this form!). We will have it fixed soon, but in the meantime, please visit
or contact us at
for additional information.
**Registration is closing on Wednesday, 8/28. Please submit the form before Thursday, 8/29, and we will be in touch to confirm your registration.**
Thank you for your interest in participating in Groundwork's Fall 2019 workshop. None of the following questions are required, but the information that you share helps us as we finalize details for the workshop. Once you've applied, you'll hear from a Groundwork member to confirm your registration.
**Please note that this fall workshop is different from workshops we've facilitated in the past. We've designed it to respond to participant feedback requesting more time spent on discussion and deeper dives into local issues like policing, reparations, and racism in Madison with an action-oriented approach. This workshop might be a good fit for you if you've been through other racial justice trainings/workshops and are looking for ways to deepen your understandings, engage in dialogue and build relationships to take action for racial justice.**
Please read the workshop description online before registering to participate. You can find this here:

A couple of notes to consider while registering. These are also included in the workshop description.
The space we use will be wheelchair accessible and close to a bus line (carpools can also be arranged). We will strive to provide childcare for participants who request it ahead of time. If you have other needs or accommodations, please let us know.
Fees: **Please wait to submit payment until your registration has been confirmed.**
We offer a sliding scale for our workshop fee because it is important to us that the workshop be accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay. Our recommended scale is $175 - $300 for individuals, $300- $550 for those sponsored by an organization/workplace. This is a big range! Please be thoughtful about what you can afford. We suggest starting in the middle of the range. We ask people who feel like they can give more, to please give generously. If you need assistance to attend the workshop, please contact us to discuss scholarship options or payment plans. We are willing to work with you to come up with a plan that works for you. **It is so important to us that this workshop is accessible to anyone who would like to attend. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.**
What does the workshop fee go toward? Groundwork members give of our time freely to organize, promote, and facilitate the workshop. Beyond paying for workshop costs (childcare, copies/office supplies, food, honorariums for guest speakers, etc.), the remainder and majority of the funds that Groundwork raises through the workshop are used to support racial justice initiatives. We help “redistribute the wealth” to support grassroots organizing by people of color working for
racial justice throughout the year, as well as organizing and education of white people to be allies in racial justice work. So the workshop fees allow you to participate in the workshop, but they also contribute to important racial justice education and activism in our communities.
About Groundwork Madison:
Groundwork is a white anti-racist collective working to recognize and break down white privilege 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 an anti-racism workshop in the fall of 2004 and we have consistently had 8-15 members.
Groundwork was intentionally formed by white activists to take responsibility for working with “our people”—other white folks—in order to challenge racism and white privilege. Building on the long history of racial justice work past and present, we seek to strategically organize white people to understand the impact white supremacy has on our lives, communities, and movements for social justice, while strengthening our courage to work for racial justice in all that we do. We are an open group and welcome people with a commitment to deepening their understanding and taking action to end racism.
