Central Colorado SURJ
Central Colorado Showing Up For Racial Justice (CCSURJ) is an affiliated chapter of Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) that represents the Central Mountain region in Colorado - from Buena Vista south to Alamosa.
Central CO SURJ was founded in July 2020.
"SURJ believes that we must ground our organizing in a framework of “mutual interest” -- white supremacy is integral to economic injustice, to maintaining patriarchy and other forms of oppression. Racism and white supremacy keep the many divided for the benefit of the few. We must have an inclusive, open-hearted approach to organizing, calling people into this work rather than creating barriers to participation while maintaining a clear political line. When those of us who are white realize that racial justice is core to our liberation as well, then masses of white people will withdraw support from white supremacy. Together, as part of a powerful multi-racial, cross-class movement for collective liberation we can force the system of white supremacy to crumble."
