Criminal Justice Issues

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend the SURJ KC mass meeting Monday night as we sharpened our anti-racist analysis of the institutions and systems that structure our lives.

As we continue to witness dangerous policies and narratives that deem some people dangerous to our public safety for simply existing, it is critical that we develop our skills to breakdown where these come from and why. That’s how we can effectively engage other white folks to challenge and disrupt these policies.

We hope the tool and presentation from Monday night’s meeting below will help you in these conversations. We encourage you to use our analysis framework and questions with issues going on in your own community or workplace.

We will follow-up with individuals who agreed to host or attend small-group meetings within the next week with materials and support.

There are lots more opportunities listed below to SHOW UP for racial justice this week. Please check those out.

SURJ KC is a 100% volunteer led organization committed to organizing white people for racial justice in accountability with People of Color.  We appreciate your financial support!

We must also commit to supporting the work of People of Color led groups that are organizing for racial justice. We are committed to giving 1/2 of our donations to local POC led groups and ask that you also make a matching donation to a POC led group fighting for racial justice. Here is a list of suggestions compiled with the help of the POC Power Team: Anytown KC • KS/MODA • One Struggle KC

Thank you for being a part of the movement for racial justice and our collective liberation!
