PURPOSE: Come together to #endwhitesilence and discuss ways to create change and build community in the greater Sacramento area. This will be a space designed for white folks to have meaningful dialogue, build relationships and action plan in order to support our local Black Lives Matter Sacramento Chapter, engage other white folks, and make our community a safer place for everyone.
SURJ believes by focusing on making it safer for the most vulnerable populations – those experiencing high targeting, discrimination and oppression – that we can make it safer for all of us. For more information about SURJ, including their mission and values, please visit www.showingupforracialjustice.org.
Future meetings will take place every 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. with an orientation for new folks at 6 pm. There will be a kid zone and potluck style refreshments. Participants will have the opportunity to network with other community members, engage in dialogue, join workgroups, and discuss action plans for addressing racism and building a stronger community together.
