The SURJ chapter network is made up of chapters and affiliates across the country who work in their local communities. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ chapters move white people to take action as part of a multi-racial majority for racial and economic justice. Work on the ground for each of SURJ’s chapters varies from place to place, but each one is committed to SURJ’s core values and mission.
“Chapters” are groups that have emerged since SURJ’s founding, rooted in SURJ’s values and mission. “Affiliates” are groups that existed previous to SURJ’s founding, share SURJ’s values, and have chosen to affiliate with SURJ.
