This online forum is a community of people who share a common goal of creating healthy dialogue about race and racialization in the U.S., with an emphasis on promoting understanding about racial disparities and injustices. The purpose of this forum is to create a safe and positive space for both learners and well-seasoned reconcilers to ask questions and process thoughts and ideas. Our intent is to equip one another to become interracial bridge builders, or ambassadors of racial reconciliation, within our respective communities. The ultimate desire is for the church to become credible witnesses to true biblical oneness.

Be the Bridge acknowledges the needs of people of color (POC) who are asked to carry a heavy load while bridge-building. The burden put on POC who are members of Be the Bridge groups often goes unseen and inadequately addressed. Be the Bridge is committed to be a healing agent in the lives of POC as well as equip POC to discover and dismantle white supremacy in their own minds and hearts. To this end, a new guide is being developed to guide POC through the process of healing.

Population(s) Served

People of Asian descent
People of African descent
People of Latin American descent
Multiracial people

College campuses are exciting places for conversations about racial unity to take place. Through campus ministries students can be encouraged to form BTB Groups with friends from sororities & fraternities, in their dorms and with people in other campus organizations.

Be the Bridge provides the framework for working through your campus’ tough racial history and current racial tensions that exist today. Our process of truth-telling, confession, grace and justice will build unity and empower lasting and true change.

Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
