For many across the US, we believe in the potential to work together to build and strengthen the base of white people locally, regionally and nationally who can“show up” to support and partner with communities of color in moving forward shared efforts for racial equality. Simultaneously, we are tired of the barrage of negative assumptions, assertions and allusions to people and communities of color in this election season. In the month of October, organizations and individuals from around the country that are committed to engaging more white people in racial justice will join together in a series of actions designed to elevate the visibility of white people publicly asking white candidates, key media outlets and others to support racial justice instead of positions that reinforce racial and social inequities.
In the wake of the numerous attacks by the police on people of color across the country, white people and organizations from all across the country are coming together through Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) to take action.
By signing up below my I / my organization:
** Pledge to take two actions for racial justice and record my actions to share with the SURJ community
**Will invite other organizations and individuals to join the month of action
**Will spread the word- use facebook, twitter, google+, instagram, etc to share my actions
