SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) RVA is a chapter of the national SURJ organization, which seeks to organize white people to dismantle white supremacy and support racial justice movements. For more info on SURJ generally, you can learn about the overall mission, vision, and values on their website.
In RVA, we focus on how we can best support and follow the leadership of Black- and People of Color-Led organizing work, including ICE out of RVA, the Sacred Ground Historical Reclamation Project, and Southerners on New Ground (SONG) Free From Fear Campaign. We also work to further our own understanding and dismantling of white privilege and structural racism, while providing education, encouragement, and support for other similarly committed white folks.
