Olympia Showing Up for Racial Justice General Meeting

Olympia Showing Up for Racial Justice General Meeting

Community Event
Olympia Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) has a monthly General Meeting on the third Monday of every month from 6-8 with a newcomers/core values meeting from 5:30pm-6. It's now on Zoom and open to anyone!
SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals working to undermine white supremacy and to work toward racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability. We work to connect people while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts.
SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.
The Olympia SURJ chapter is a multi-racial group striving to put white people in motion to fight white supremacy. We are accountable to many people, we are accountable to BIPOC-led organizations and Justice Struggles, we are accountable to each other, and we are accountable to our community, which includes YOU.
There will be lots of updates on work happening and ways to plug in or get in motion. There will be teachings and opportunities to TAKE RISKS, connect with each other and build trust. There’s lots of work to do so please join us in showing up for racial justice.
Our General Meetings offer an opportunity to share events, announcements and work that folks might not know about. Bring a friend and/or try to connect with someone you haven’t yet met during tonight’s gathering. Bring your wallet as you will learn about ways to make reparations and contribute to needs of our BIPOC community members. We continue to grow deeper connections, by getting to know each other, building with each other, and sharing strategy.
