SURJ Sacramento works in community with Black, indigenous, and people of color-lead resistance, liberation, and abolition movements to dismantle white supremacy and its systems of oppression.
SURJ Sacramento serves the greater Sacramento area with partnerships with NorCal Resist and California Heritage Indigenous Research Project (CHIRP). Our primary goals are fundraising and mobilizing folks for our partners, as well as providing education on systemic racism, intersectionality, white supremacy, privilege, and getting involved in anti-racism work.
We also strive to provide models for White people for how to show up for racial justice in meaningful ways. Our core members are regularly involved in the programs and actions provided, coordinated, and held by our partner organizations.
