More in Common

One of the most common questions we get at SURJ is: “How do I talk to other white people about racism?” The truth is, you can read all the books and conversion guides you want to, but nothing beats good old-fashioned practice.

I am proud that SURJ’s organizing programs have trained thousands of white antiracists with powerful organizing skills to engage deeply with other white people, move them to support our cause, and win campaigns across the country.

Our organizing programs engage millions of white people every year. Today, we’re launching a new video, “More in Common,” that shares a taste of what it’s like to organize with our national programs.

Ready to plug in? As you’ve heard, we’re currently organizing white people in Pittsburgh to show up to support Rep. Summer Lee, an unapologetically progressive Black Congresswoman who has championed racial justice bills and public education. 

Our next phonebank for her—–and your next opportunity to hone your organizing skills—–is April 6. Can you join us?

In solidarity,

Erin Heaney

SURJ Executive Director
