SURJ Atlanta works to dismantle systemic white supremacy by moving people from compassion to action. We prepare our members to advocate for racial justice in their everyday lives and show up for direct actions led by people of color (PoC). Guided by our accountability to PoC-led organizations, we are building a multi-racial majority for racial justice by addressing our relative positions of privilege, processing bias, and challenging manifestations of white supremacy – both explicit and implicit – within our own communities.
SURJ Structure and Member Roles
All members are eligible and encouraged to serve on a committee. Committees plan and execute the day-to-day work of SURJ Atlanta, while larger directional decisions, for example about what organizations or events to support, are made by consensus of the steering committee. The steering committee is made up of representatives from each of the working committees.
