The SURJ Families Zine: Families Taking Action for Racial Justice is by and for actual families and caregivers who are working for racial justice -- coming as we are. It's a mix of practical tips and creative works that we hope inspire and support you and your family in taking collective action for racial justice. Pieces include:
- Tips on making it through a racial justice meeting with a toddler
- A letter to use with your children's teacher to discuss racial justice themes around Thanksgiving
- Tools people without families can use to make racial justice meetings more accessible to families
- Legal advice about risking arrest at a protest as a parent (will it impact my custody battle?) and,
- Many inspiring pieces of creative art and writing, capturing the challenges and beauty of working for racial justice as a parent.
