Our Story

At Groundswell, we envision a world where belonging is co-created and experienced by all and we’ve already begun here in Orange County.  

Differences in experience and understanding are places to learn and grow – so we bring diverse people together

Divisive language and hateful rhetoric are opportunities to build bridges; we invite everyone into conversation so we can grow together. 

Toxic conflict breeds mistrust, so we create partnerships and build trust with education and constructive approaches to prevent future occurrences. 

Students, parents, colleagues – the people of Orange County – are speaking out against injustice, so we develop tools and training to support these leaders and their vision for change.  

For over 30 years we have been providing the tools and experiences to address inequity and injustice. We believe each and every one of us is part of the circle of humanity and seeing each other as keys to the solution is how we will create belonging.
