break down the barriers to overcoming poverty. Solid Ground does both. We combine direct services
with advocacy to meet basic needs, nurture success, and spread change. Through our programs,
people gain stability and build skills that equip them to move forward in their lives. Through advocacy,
we work toward ending racism and other oppressions embedded in our institutions, policies, and
culture that hold people back from succeeding. We bring the voices of people experiencing poverty
into the political process, furthering social justice, and supporting our entire community to reach its
potential.
 Demonstrate the initiative to learn and enhance skills that promote anti-racism, cultural
competency and an understanding of oppression and its impact.
 Participate in intentional learning efforts, including events relating to understanding and
dismantling institutional racism and building cultural competency.
