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.

Our work is our gain. As we transform our world and relinquish privilege, we gain integrity, peace, humility, and collective liberation. - SONG
