Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) Northern Virginia is a chapter of a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice.

Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multiracial movement for justice with passion and accountability. We work to connect people across Northern Virginia while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts. SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills, and political analysis to act for change.

Muslim Ban 2.0

Ongoing action from Heather Cronk at SURJ National: SURJ has set up a mobile tool for folks to text the word RESIST to 82623 if they want to continue to engage and/or engage more deeply. If you’re going to Dulles or engaging folks online, a few suggested messages:

“White people: help end our legacy of violence. Text RESIST to 82623 to get involved!”

“White folks – our work isn’t over. Join SURJ by texting RESIST to 82623!”

“White folks – join the resistance to Trump’s agenda! Text RESIST to 82623 to join!”

When folks text that number, we’ll ask them for their zip code so that we know where they live, then we’ll ask them to donate to NQAPIA (supporting LGBTQ Muslims, who will be disproportionately impacted by the ban), join a local SURJ meeting, hold elected officials accountable, or all of the above.
