I want to thank all the many hands that have made a beautiful Fall Season at BRIDGE. We have been around the community at BCC, Great Barrington Courthouse, Great Barrington Farmers Market, Mass MoCA Berkshire-Based gala, Great Barrington Fairgrounds with our BRIDGE Solidarity Garden and Farm with our Fish Fry and Harvest Festival and Pig Roast.
We have been launching our Trauma Survivors program and associated services. Please be in touch if you have questions about our culturally specific victim assistance.
Winter is on its way here and our mutual aid shifts from CSA shares to groceries and we could use your support! We want to thank Kate Bailey for the service she provided for this first season of land access, along with Stephanie Wright and many, many of our long-time BRIDGE participants. BRIDGE can process fuel assistance applications for BCAC in Spanish and English– let us know if you want to connect with our Engagement Team.
Also, a special thank you for raising $3110 for Gwendolyn's Birthday SJIA and Lily’s SJIA at $715! This is our annual appeal season, and we are off to a good start!
We are a collective, movement-building community across workplace and community spaces catalyzing change and integration
We want to hear from you as we plan our activities for next year!
