Recent events, such as the mass shootings in Buffalo, New York and Uvalde, Texas, raise fresh pain for marginalized communities who have and continue to suffer most significantly from the hostilities of racism, from large scale violence to every day microaggressions.
Join SURJ South County for an honest dialogue inviting members of the community to explore strategies for showing up in a sustained manner to support our most vulnerable community members, who do this work often alone. Many of us have the resources, privilege and time to show up but need direction, focus and a reminder that making change requires all of us.
