About showing up for racial justice

Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) organizes majority-white communities across the
country to work for racial and economic justice. Our work encompasses: supporting a network of
200 chapters across the US and Canada; growing and mobilizing a national membership body
for individual members; running place-based organizing projects in Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky,
and Georgia; running electoral work for local, state, and national races in strategic locations;
and working alongside POC-led partner organizations in the broader social justice movement
ecosystem.

We ground our organizing in a framework of mutual interest and have an inclusive,
open-hearted approach to organizing — calling people into this work rather than creating
barriers to participation — while maintaining a clear political line. We believe that together — as
part of a powerful multi-racial, cross-class movement for collective liberation — we can force the
systems of white supremacy and racialized capitalism to crumble.
