SURJ NYC is a local chapter of a national network organizing white people for racial justice.


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. 

We work to connect people in NYC on local racial justice organizing efforts. SURJ NYC provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.

We stand for the dignity of the people murdered by the NYPD including Amadou Diallo, Sean Bell, Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham, Akai Gurley, Kalief Browder and all who are unnamed in the media.

We stand for accountability of our police, politicians, the corporate elite, and one another. We act collectively and publicly to break white silence.

We learn from the long history of People of Color and white people who struggled for ending all systems of oppression. We play our role in building a powerful multiracial majority for justice and liberation. We show up.
