Showing up for Racial Justice Akron Chapter

 
The Racial Justice Task Force will 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 at UUCA
6 pm for new folks
6:30-8:30 pm meeting

Attend this meeting and find out how you can be the change you wish to see in the world!

RACE FORWARD AKRON REPORT

November 19, the RJTF hosted Race Forward Akron: Building Community and Taking Action for Racial Justice.  Collaborating with Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), Akron Organizing Coalition (AOC) and the Akron Initiative for Racial Equality (AIRE) the full day of workshops brought 64 participants from our church and the local community.  We spent the day exploring racism, our role in perpetuating it and laid groundwork for taking the next steps in addressing it in ourselves and our community.
We are looking forward to continuing our community collaborations into the new year.  We will be working with our community partners to initiate a Showing Up for Racial Justice Akron Chapter.  We encourage folks to visit the SURJ website (www.showingupforracialjustice.org) to explore the work SURJ is called to do. Through this new Akron chapter we will expand on the workshops presented at Race Forward Akron and work to make change. We will keep you posted.
