SURJ Marin is part of a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice.
Through community organizing, mobilizing and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for racial justice with passion and accountability.
SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.
We envision a society where we struggle together with love, for justice, human dignity and a sustainable world.
SURJ Marin Chapter shared values:
- Calling people in, not calling out
- Take risks, make mistakes, learn, and keep going
- Tap into white mutual interest; organize out of mutual interest
- Accountability through collective action
- Understand that we may not get the validation we hunger for
- There is enough for all
SURJ Marin has committed to act and serve as white allies to these organizations led by people of color based in Marin County, and to donate a major portion of our net fundraising proceeds to these organizations.
