We’re on NBC News as part of their National Day of Racial Healing special!
The segment profiles Kentucky People’s Union (KPU), a working class-led project of SURJ organizing working people in Appalachian Kentucky for quality housing. Founded as a project of SURJ in 2022 in small town, majority-white Ashland, Kentucky, KPU has grown into a powerful organizing home in the region with over 100 members and dozens of leaders.
This is what SURJ’s organizing on multiple scales looks like: blocking the far right from further advancing in Washington, and cutting their base out from under them by growing our small town organizing in the South.
