Upcoming Events

SURJ Northeast Ohio public meetings are back!

Join us next Thursday, October 5th from 7:00pm-9:00pm for our October Chapter Meeting to plug into the movement for racial justice in Northeast Ohio and beyond. 
 
Where: Pilgrim Congregational Church
(in the Tremont neighborhood)
Pilgrim Church is wheelchair accessible.
 
We’ll discuss what the Leadership Team has been working on all summer, where our chapter is headed, and how to contribute to the movement and local action. We will also have an education portion from guest speakers (soon to be announced) on how to confront white supremacy in our daily lives.

Many of you have been following and showing up for the campaigns of our partner organizations all summer. On Thursday, we’ll talk about concrete ways to further that work and continue undermining white support for white supremacy.

Note: After feedback in spring 2017 from our accountability partners and many other activists of color in Cleveland, we realized that we had to make some changes in order to become a more accountable and effective anti-racist group. There was (and still is!) so much work for us to do, and planning monthly meetings was taking a huge amount of time and energy.

That’s why the SURJ NEO Leadership Team used the summer months to meet every two weeks to firm up accountability, build a structure that works, and get clear on how monthly meetings serve our goal of showing up for People of Color-led groups and undermining white support for white supremacy. The Leadership Team continues to meet every two weeks to strategize about accountability, a chapter structure, and building a leader-full chapter.
