Frequently Asked Questions
Is TSURJ just for white folks?
TSURJ is a chapter of National SURJ, whose purpose is to move white people into accountable action as part of a multi-racial movement for racial justice. This means organizing white people, which we believe is labor that white folks should do and have been called to do by Black, Indigenous, communities of color for decades. People of all races & ethnicities are welcomed and encouraged at TSURJ gatherings.
How can I get involved?
Currently, TSURJ is focused on fostering relationships and sharing ways to be meaningfully involved in movement work across the Triangle. Through social media, e-blasts and occasional events, we promote 1) upcoming events & actions led by trusted local organizations/groups, 2) calls to move money to support anti-racist organizing, 3) resources for learning more about race, anti-racist work, & movement building. To get involved, sign up for our email list (complete form below) and follow us on Facebook & Instagram – you’ll learn about upcoming events and ways to plug into movement work across the Triangle.
How do I become a member of TSURJ?
Since TSURJ began in 2015, we have consistently decided to not be a membership organization – we are a hub for building relationships and supporting anti-racist organizing in the Triangle. We encourage you to become a reoccurring donor to National SURJ and/or support the plentiful membership organizations in the Triangle: Durham for All, SONG, People’s Alliance, Raleigh PACT and numerous others.
