SURJ: Showing Up for Racial Justice
For too long, the Right has hoarded wealth and power by using strategic racism to convince white people that we have more in common with billionaires and corporate elites than with the people of color in our communities. At SURJ, we bring our folks in by offering a better alternative: a just, vibrant future where people of all races work together to win what we need. We do this work by building people power in multi-racial communities across our network — through campaigns, 200 chapters across the country, and deep local organizing projects.

Because The community feels the need to organize a healing space after what took place on UNLV campus December 6th, 2023. We will be holding a space for Healing . We want this space to be open to UNLV students and faculty as well as the larger community. We believe that this space will help foster the beginning of connecting with each other and building relationships in community. We will have healers and medical professionals available to assist those in crisis. Contact Susanna M. for more information.
