About SURJ MN:
SURJ MN is a local Minnesota Chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice.

Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. We have some biracial people who are part of the group and we have had people of color attend, though usually just out of curiosity to see what all these white folks are up to.

While everyone is welcome, the programming is specifically designed for white folks. White people have been told for years by POC activists that we need to educate and organize our own people. So that's what we try to do with SURJ MN. Our education events focus on educating white people about white supremacy, and the ways in which whites are advantaged by white supremacist structures and can use their positionality to work against those structures. In our action planning, we consider what kinds of actions we might be best positioned to carry out as white people in the fight for racial justice (either because of access or resources or social networks).
