WHAT IS SURJ NASHVILLE ALL ABOUT?

SURJ Nashville is about raising white consciousness about racism and mobilizing white people to join and support movements for racial justice.

SURJ Nashville, a chapter of the national Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) network, is a group of individuals organizing white people for racial justice in Middle Tennessee. Through education, outreach, and mobilization, SURJ Nashville’s mission and purpose are: (1) to call white people into the work of unlearning racism and white supremacy that operates in personal attitudes and relationships; (2) to call white people into the work of divesting from and dismantling racism and white supremacy that operates within systems and institutions; (3) to create spaces of learning, accountability, and transformation for people seeking to engage in the work outlined above; and (4) to support local, statewide, regional, and national people of color (POC) led movements for racial and social justice.
