SURJ to speak
at Sept. 12 program

Stephanie Roades of Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ - Milwaukee) will be our guest speaker at Rid Racism Milwaukee’s general meeting on Monday, September 12 at 6:30 p.m. at the Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee, 2819 W. Highland Boulevard.

SURJ Milwaukee undertakes the work of challenging and dismantling racism by calling in White people to learn, organize and act against White supremacy, Whiteness, and racial injustice with passion and accountability. SURJ – Milwaukee is aligned with a national network of groups and individuals organizing White people for these causes across our country.

At our September 12 meeting, Ms. Roades will provide a short informational session on SURJ’s organization, methods, and benefits. She will also provide an interactive skill-building workshop complete with role play to help participants learn how to interrupt racism, and hold tough conversations that begin to help others start the process of seeing issues of injustice through a clearer lens.
