We are meeting virtually using Zoom one time per month. Sign up for our newsletter or follow us on Facebook to get the most up to date information.

First Sunday Meetings

A small leadership team is responsible for facilitating the meeting agendas, reflecting on DSM SURJ’s vision and direction, and maintaining consistent communication within the chapter, and with National SURJ.  All SURJ participants are encouraged to communicate directly with the Leadership Core (LC) ( DSM SURJ seeks to function in a manner that is as collaborative, constructive and transparent as possible. Members of the Leadership Core take seriously our responsibility for enabling this kind of process.

SURJers are always invited to bring ideas, initiatives and questions to the first meeting of the month. At this meeting we grow our connections to one another, share progress on initiatives, and discuss issues of mutual concern. 

Work Groups 

The third Sunday meeting is a working meeting. At this meeting, nuts-and-bolts organizing on the various initiatives we are engaged in, attention to logistics, and other necessary planning will constitute the bulk of our meeting time.

DSM SURJ currently has three active working groups:

  1. Racial Justice Education Group
  2. Immigration Justice Group
  3. Equity in Education Group

More details on each of these groups will be posted here shortly.

*Newcomers are always welcome at any DSM SURJ meeting. We are committed to having childcare available at every meeting as well (and, for those who are reluctant to leave their parents, kids are always welcome to stay in the larger meeting, too).
