We are the South Santa Clara County California Chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice.
SURJ’s role as part of a multi-racial movement is to undermine white support for white supremacy and to help build a racially just society.
That work cannot be done in isolation from or disconnected from the powerful leadership of communities of color. It is one part of a multi- racial, cross-class movement centering people of color leadership.
Therefore, SURJ believes in resourcing organizing led by people of color, and maintaining strong accountability relationships with organizers and communities of color as central part of our theory of change.
SURJ South County was founded in Morgan Hill in 2016.
We frequently participate in or organize marches and demonstrations that support racial and social justice such as Lights for Liberty & March for Our Lives.
We have resumed regular programming at the Morgan Hill Library, usually on the 4th Wednesday of every month. Check the EVENTS tab for more details!
