Our Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ) committee continues to host our anti-racist education through book discussions and is currently in the beginning phase of planning fundraisers for 2023. Our committee meets twice a month with one meeting dedicated to book discussions and the other to planning. If you are looking for ways to take action for racial equity, you are welcome to attend a meeting to see if this is the space for you.
As we begin a new year, we would love to hear from you on how you would like to engage in anti-racism work. Please take a moment to fill out this survey to share your ideas.
Our fundraisers are part of our commitment to support the work and organizations led by Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) in our community. We have just begun planning for our next fundraiser so now is a great time to join this part of our anti-racist work.
Our book discussions are a part of our anti-racist education that has been primarily focused on the learning and unlearning white people need to do to reduce harm while engaging in social justice work. We will be starting a new book on March 9th.
- Book discussions are on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 5:30pm via Zoom.
- Planning meetings are on the 4th Thursday of each month at 5:30pm via Zoom
- Note: In February, both meetings will be focused on planning a fundraiser to support APIC Spokane
