An Introduction to
Bridge-Building for White People

When it comes to racial bridge-building for white people, Be the Bridge places a lot of the focus on listening to and learning from Black, Indigenous, Asian and Latinx communities.

While listening and engaging with people of color is important, there is a lot of work to be done to “catch up” on our racial understanding. We cannot place the burden on BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) by expecting them to teach a basic level of information we can learn through our own reading, research, and self-reflection.

This course, Foundations: An Introduction to Bridge-Building for White People, gives you a way to do that preliminary and necessary work. It is created for the white community, by our white educators. Foundations should be used as a “first step” before finding ways to find and/or deepen cross-racial engagement, such as through the Be the Bridge’s Building Bridges guide intended for cross-racial groups.

The next Foundations course will be
