CU will, once again, host the prominent anti-racism organization Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) on Thursday, February 19th at 6:30 p.m. in the Learning Sciences Room in the School of Education.
SURJ focuses on the organization and engagement of caucasian people, specifically, in racial justice.
Operating in over 20 states, SURJ has been a leading presence in nationwide protests and activism responding to the respective deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police this summer.
This meeting will follow a workshop facilitated by SURJ on Feb. 5th . It will also focus on strategies that caucasian protesters can use in organizing others around racial justice and discuss measures they can take to be most effective in supporting African-American communities.
Carla Wallace, a recognized leader in social justice activism and co-founder of SURJ, will facilitate the meeting.
Thursday night’s event is free of charge and open to the public.
