Common Ground is committed to giving registration priority to members of some communities that have experienced historical oppression: Black, Indigenous, people of color, transgender, and genderqueer folks. We hope this increases the likelihood of a sense of safety and belonging for all members of our community. We recognize this policy benefits us all as we practice the Buddha’s teachings in an increasingly multicultural community and engage in the ongoing work needed to create a more equitable world. To learn more, contact Gabe Keller Flores: 612-722-8260 or gabe@commongroundmeditation.org. We welcome feedback on any aspect of this policy.
