Racial Justice Events
One of our primary goals is to help connect people to the amazing racial justice work that's been happening in the Boston area for decades. We want to bolster the work of organizations led by people of color and those that help move white people to acknowledge and challenge all forms of racism.
SURJ Boston keeps a calendar of some of the local events we’re aware of, and every week an email is sent to the group with a preview of the week's events to encourage folks to show up and participate.
We regularly post racial justice-related events from the following organizations:
Alternatives for Community and Environment, Anti-Racism Collaborative, Black & Pink, Black Lives Matter Boston, Black Lives Matter Cambridge, City Life/Vida Urbana, Community Change Inc, The Humanist Hub, Keep It 100% for Egleston, Knapsack Anti-Racism Group, Mass Action Against Police Brutality, Right to Remain Boston, SEIU, SURJ National, White People Challenging Racism
If you want your organization’s racial justice events to be added, please email SURJ@communitychangeinc.org to begin our 3-day approval process. If the event is happening within the next 5 days, please write “URGENT” in the subject line and we will try to approve your post as quickly as possible.
(NOTE: As of Aug '16, events have been getting randomly deleted for some reason, if what you're looking for isn't on there, this may be why)
