SURJ is a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice.

Through community organizing, mobilizing and education, SURJ moves White people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability.

We work to connect people across the country while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts. SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change. 

We envision a society where we struggle together with love, for justice, human dignity and a sustainable world.


We live in a time of great hope and possibility, yet the potential for a just world for all of us is not possible when racism and oppression keep us divided.

This can make us forget how closely connected we truly are.

Racism is still present throughout all of our contemporary institutions and structures. Racism is devastating to People of Color and is closely intertwined with all systems of oppression. It robs all of us- White people and People of Color- of our humanity.

We honor and learn from the long history of People of Color and White people who have been unrelenting in their struggles for racial justice, and ending all systems of oppression.

We are showing up to take our responsibility as White people to act collectively and publicly to challenge the manipulation of racist fear by the ruling class and corporate elite.

We know that to transform this country we must be part of building a powerful multiracial majority to challenge racism in all its forms.
