LOOKING FOR A WAY TO SHOW UP FOR RACIAL JUSTICE?
As we head into a Trump presidency, it's more important than ever to ensure that organizers of color have the resources they need to resist all of the ways that communities of color will be under attack. It's also important to ensure that we, as white people, are doing the work of moving our own white friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to disavow and disrupt white supremacy.
One of the ways we can do that is to engage in phone-banking. This winter, SURJ will run a phone-bank in order to:
- Generate resources to support powerful organizing led by people of color, and SURJ's organizing to undermine support for racist policies and practices in white communities
- Deepen our community of white people fighting for racial justice
- Build your leadership and fundraising skills and create community across the SURJ network
All you need is 3 hours of your time and, at minimum, a phone. Things that make phone banking much easier are a smartphone, computer, and solid internet connection. Building the movement requires that all of us dig in where we can -- will you join us?
We have filled all of our phone bank training shifts for December. If you are interested in phone banking in the future, please select the "phone bank interest" option below. That's how you'll get on our list to know about ongoing phone banking opportunities!
