Direct Action for Racial Justice: a SURJ Bay Area Training


Join us for our third 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.

Space is limited to 60 people per workshop and you must pre-register through Brown Paper Tickets to attend.

Snacks will be provided.
