SURJ South County is a local group of individuals organizing people for racial justice. Through community organization, mobilization, and education, SURJ promotes all people to act as part of a multiracial society for social justice with passion and accountability. We work with people within the community and across the country to support and collaborate with racial justice organizing efforts. Our group also acknowledges the intersectionality of the ways in which systems of oppression affect marginalized groups (based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, ability/disability status,etc.. ). SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.
We envision a society where we struggle and strive together for equity, love, peace, justice, human dignity, compassion and a sustainable world.
