SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice), Bay Area chapter, is part of a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice. There are over 150 chapters and affiliates nationwide. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability.
SURJ Bay Area Youth and Families Committee is excited to announce the Oakland version of the monthly Racial Justice Story Time that's been sponsored by SF SURJ. Held at Oakland public libraries and led by a variety of educators, activists, and community partners, Racial Justice Story Time will engage the whole family with books and activities to help start conversations about race and social justice issues. The event is best suited for kids ages 2-8, but all are welcome.
