Work that is Near and Dear to My Heart

SHOWING UP FOR RACIAL JUSTICE = SURJ

SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) Santa Cruz is part of a national network of over 150 chapters nationwide which are motivating White people to work for racial and economic justice through community organizing, mobilization, and education.

SURJ’s role as part of a multi-racial, cross-class movement is to undermine white support for white supremacy while working for racial justice. We understand that this work is effective only when engaged with the leadership of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Therefore, our guiding principle ensures that we maintain strong accountability relationships with organizers and communities of Color.
