What is SURJ?

SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) is a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability. Our chapter's work is rooted in the SURJ National Values.

Local Values

As white people committed to working for racial justice in Northern New Mexico, we understand that we represent the most recent wave of colonialism. We continually strive to understand our roles as newcomers to the nations and cultures which have existed here centuries prior to our arrival. Read more on our Local Values page here.

Get Involved


Here are a few ways to get involved either on a regular basis or sporadically:


Attend one of our Unlearning Racism Discussions, a space for white folks in Northern New Mexico to explore and unpack issues of race and racial justice. Or dive in alone or with friends using our list of self-study resources.


Show up to actions with SURJ, ready to follow the lead of those impacted by the issue being addressed. Solidarity, not charity!
