Registration Priority Policy

Common Ground gives priority registration to program participants of the following groups: Black, Indigenous, and people of color, as well as non-binary and transgender people. Two main values informing this policy are justice and safety. Regarding justice, we see this policy as an imperfect and insufficient attempt to remediate current and historical disadvantages faced by these groups by offering an advantage in our registration process. Regarding safety, we see this policy as an imperfect attempt to create a safer space for participants of these groups by making it more likely to not ever be “the only one” at a given program. There are other advantages to this policy, for example, the benefit to all participants of being in a more diverse group. To learn more, contact the center at info@commongroundmeditation.org or 612-722-8260. We welcome feedback on any aspect of this policy.
