SURJ Colorado Springs is the local chapter of a national network of groups and individuals organizing people for racial justice.
SURJ Colorado Springs honors SURJ National’s core principles of calling in more white people to be accomplices in the fight for racial justice and holding white people accountable and responsible for dismantling white supremacy and breaking down systems of oppression. Simultaneously, SURJ COS has been a multiracial space since its inception and the organization wants to further embrace and center the community. All are welcome that are wanting to show up for racial justice. At its core, SURJ is accountable to people of color (POC)-led activism, initiatives, and calls-to-action and they will maintain this format.
