Showing up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Akron Chapter

 
The Racial Justice Task Force partner with SURJ. We are looking for white folks ready to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work of racial justice. White people have a role in racial justice organizing.  We collectively hold the system of white supremacy in place – either passively or actively – and a big part of our work is with each other.
 
SURJ:Akron meets the last Tues of the month visit www.surjakron.org for meeting dates and times.
6 pm for new folks
6:30-8:30 pm meeting
