Direct Action for Racial Justice: A SURJ Bay Area Training (San Francisco)

Direct Action for Racial Justice: a Showing Up For Racial Justice (SURJ) Bay Area Training
Mark the date: June 11th, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
-----
Join SURJ Bay Area on Sunday, 6/11/17, 9:30-3:30, for our sixth homegrown Direct Action training dedicated to teaching you the framework and the hard skills needed to take action for racial justice. This interactive workshop is designed to give you real-time experiences of being in a protest while also building our understanding of direct action from the perspective of white people participating in the movement for racial justice.
We talk about the importance of direct action, centering Black and POC voices, our perspective on relating to police, our legal rights, and more. We teach direct action skills through the use of scenarios, discussion and role plays. Space is limited to 60 people per workshop and you must pre-register through the SURJ website to attend.

Cost: The workshop has a suggested donation of $10-$35 to cover event expenses, and support future organizing within SURJ Bay Area and our partner organizations. No one turned away for lack of funds- please contact mobilization@surjbayarea.org for accommodation. Lunch will be provided.

Contact: mobilization@surjbayarea.org with any questions or concerns.
