Part of our work as settlers and white people working toward racial justice is to reckon with our entitlement to and possession of wealth.
One of the goals of NNM SURJ is to facilitate the redistribution of wealth from settlers directly to Indigenous people, and to help move resources to organizations working towards Abolition and Indigenous Sovereignty. NNM SURJ’s Resource Redistribution Team provides clear ways to plug in to local or regional fundraisers, supply drives, and other efforts led by and benefiting BIPOC communities and racial justice movements.
If you would like to be part of our Redistribution Team, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone is welcome!

Pay the Honor Native Land Tax
The Honor Native Land Tax (HNLT) is a project of Albuquerque Showing up for Racial Justice (ABQ SURJ). The Honor Native Land Tax fundraises money in order to provide ongoing, no-strings-attached financial support to Indigenous organizations in this area. Specifically, HNLT is investing in Pueblo Action Alliance and The Red Nation. By redistributing resources from settlers (those who benefit from settler colonialism) to Indigenous people (those who are harmed by settler colonialism), the HNLT offers a chance for settlers to make an ongoing contribution to Indigenous movements for land, water, and futures. This is a cross-class project that allows people to contribute financially on a sliding scale basis. In doing so, settlers are able to move towards a right relationship with Indigenous peoples.

Disrupting the Racial Wealth Gap
We are living in the most extreme wealth inequality in modern history; an inequality inextricably bound up with white supremacy and capitalism. On an individual and community scale, wealth hoarding can stop with our generation if we are willing to center class and get uncomfortable with our own class conditioning. If you are ready to learn more about a vision in which wealth, land, and power are equitably shared, we recommend checking out Resource Generation here.
