The ultimate measure of a person is not where one stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where one stands in times of challenge and controversy.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) ~ Historic Triangle
We are currently building a new SURJ Chapter dedicated to working toward an inclusive society that deeply values compassion, justice, and dignity for each person by undermining white supremacy within ourselves, our community, and our institutions.
Please visit SURJ.org, a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial and economic justice, to learn more about their work, developed and honed over more than a decade of organizing with the belief that we must have an inclusive, openhearted approach to organizing— bringing more and more people into this work rather than creating barriers to participation— while maintaining clear commitments to justice.
