Building Bridges of Asheville

The mission of Building Bridges is to dismantle racism by fostering relationships that respect diversity, seek understanding and encourage action. We provide educational programming paired with a safe place to learn, reflect and discuss.

Since 1993, Building Bridges has profoundly impacted people and institutions throughout Western North Carolina. To date, more than 1500 participants have attended the program.

Building Bridges hosts two nine-week educational sessions focusing on black-and-white racism in Asheville each year.
