We seek to build deeper connections among white people who are committed to justice and equality. Our goal is to pull more white Iowans off the sidelines and into an active and ongoing commitment to create an environment where diversity is valued and equity is achieved.
We are committed to building a visible and effective white antiracist movement in Iowa. Taking responsibility for the role white people need to play and increasing white Iowan commitments to justice is important. In the course of doing this work, we remain always accountable to communities of color, who have long been engaged in such work. Partnership and accountability are fundamental SURJ values.
We look forward to you joining us in this work.
