A couple of notes to consider while registering. These are also included in the workshop description.
Accessibility:The space we use will be wheelchair accessible and close to a bus line. 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: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 $150 - $250 for individuals, $250- $500 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 and no one will be turned away for 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, 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 forracial 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 antiracist 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.
