The current iteration of Northern New Mexico SURJ was started in June 2020 in response to the murder of George Floyd and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, and in support of ongoing Indigenous justice efforts throughout the region. We currently have about 16 core organizers representing four counties who meet bi-weekly via Zoom and in smaller working groups as needed. Our Facebook group has 600 members.
At this time, the membership and efforts of NNM SURJ is concentrated in Santa Fe and the Española Valley. It is our intention to support efforts and chapter building from other parts of Northern New Mexico. NNM SURJ is a totally volunteer-run organization.
