SURJ Bay Area Action Hours

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with others who are feeling rage and deep sadness about racism and white supremacy, but not sure what to do. Join SURJ for an hour of action! We’ll meet over Zoom to provide concrete steps you can take—calling elected officials, signing petitions, etc.—to combat racism against Black & Indigenous people and communities of color.  (Closed captioning will be available in the main room of Action Hour calls.) https://www.surjbayarea.org/events
