SURJ Racial Justice for People of Faith Gathering

When: Sunday, August 06 2023 @ 03:00 pm - - 05:00pm
Event Type:
Where: Sacred Heart Community Services
1381 S. First Street - outdoor courtyard
San Jose
Description: SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) hosts a quarterly convening of people from around the county whose faith has compelled them to racial and social justice work within their faith communities. Our goal is to create an opportunity for us all to get to know each other, learn from one another and strengthen our web of relationships over treats and meaningful reflection as we move towards deeper action to bring about racial justice. When: Sunday, August 6th 3-5pm Where: Sacred Heart Community Service at 1381 S. First Street in San Jose, in the outdoor courtyard weather permitting Who's invited: You, but also anyone from the racial/social justice/social action committee in your faith community (please feel free to forward this invitation) Why: To build a tighter web of racial justice allies Please RSVP for the event using link below or here: so that we can make arrangements for snacks/treats. In the last convening, we focused on why *collective* action is our most powerful lever for change and we will continue to develop practical skills for using our moral legitimacy as faith communities to move our elected officials toward concrete racial justice policies. But, whether you have attended previous faith racial justice convenings or are coming for the first time, all are welcome. Let me know if you have any questions.
