SURJ: Showing Up for Racial Justice
We're so glad you're interested in organizing with SURJ! SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) DC is a chapter of the national SURJ organization, which seeks to organize white people to dismantle white supremacy and support racial justice movements. For more info on SURJ generally, you can learn about the overall mission, vision, and values on their website. In DC, we focus on how we can best support and follow the leadership of Black- and People of Color-Led organizing work, including Black Lives Matter-DC, the Stop Police Terror Project, EmpowerDC, and ONE DC. We also work on furthering our own political education and analysis, and connect with other white people interested in doing this work, canvassing, fundraising, and more.
