The Bridge Builders Project tells the stories of Charlottesville leaders who have been recognized for their efforts to cross class, racial, and economic barriers to create a diverse and just community. By learning this history, we anticipate that citizens, including students, will be inspired to continue the work to transform our community into a more inclusive and welcoming place where all can thrive and grow.

Charlottesville Bridge Builders is a project of Preservation Piedmont.  This website and the Unity Day event have been supported by a grant from Virginia Humanities.

Anne Chesnut, website design, and Margaret McNett Burruss, site production, helped create the site.
