SURJ Bay Area - Youth & Families

Oakland, CA

The Youth & Families Committee is centered on helping white families, educators and youth workers break down the privilege we have in avoiding conversations with white children about race, racism, police violence, displacement, and white supremacy. Our work is intended to help families understand these dynamics and have the language and practice to begin to interrupt the ways we socialize white children into white supremacy at the root. Our workshops use modeling and practice to springboard families into interrupting the formation of white supremacy in our families, and challenging it where we see it in interpersonal, institutional and systemic dynamics in our lives.
