Racial Justice Events in Marin

What does it mean to have a white racial identity? What are our implicit biases? Why is it so hard to talk about racism? How do we have these conversations and still center Black, Indigenous and People of Color in the movement for racial justice? If you’ve ever wondered these things and if you’d like to join a conversation unpacking these questions and more, join us! Our goals will be to talk about• Understanding whiteness • Starting to talk about race • Learning how to disrupt racism.

Reclaim Our Vote Virtual Phone Bank Looking for a way to do anti-racist work from home? Join SURJ Marin in phoning out-of-state voters who have likely been purged from their voter rolls. Together, we will provide voters with the tools they need to cast their ballots in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, and more!
Reclaim Our Vote (ROV) is a civil rights / voter outreach campaign organized by the nonpartisan Center for Common Ground of Virginia, with partners like Black Voters Matter, the NAACP, and Mi Familia Vota. The ROV campaign is led by people of color and has reached out to nearly a million voters since 2017. Through outreach to people in states with long histories of voter suppression, ROV has increased turnout among voters of color by large margins.
Please join us every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 12-2pm PST to phone bank for ROV. No experience is necessary as we will meet on Zoom for training and ongoing support to make calls. Please come ready with a phone and computer or iPad/tablet.
In this challenging time, let’s come together and support every person’s right to vote! Sign up at surjmarin.org/events
America’s history of racial inequality continues to undermine fair treatment, equal justice, and opportunity for many Americans. The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) believes we must acknowledge the truth about our history before we can heal: truth and reconciliation are sequential.
As a nation, we have not yet acknowledged our history of racial injustice, including the genocide of Native people, the legacy of slavery and racial terror, and the legally-supported abuse of racial minorities.
When we engage truthfully with our history, we are better equipped to address contemporary issues ranging from mass incarceration, immigration, and human rights to how we think and talk about cultural moments and icons.
EJI designed A History of Racial Injustice as a set of tools for learning more about people and events in American history that are critically important but not well known. This digital experience highlights events on this day in history with rich detail and intuitive sharing features. Find the daily /monthly calendar here.
