Direct Action for Racial Justice: A SURJ Bay Area Training

Join SURJ Bay Area for our fourth 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 extremely limited and you must pre-register to attend. Registration priority is granted to folks who were waitlisted for the previous workshop and to active SURJ members. No walk-up registrations are offered.

Do you want to learn the ins and outs of participating in marches, protests and blockades? Are you ready to learn about how to handle police interactions while being accountable and working in solidarity with people of color-led organizations? This event runs from 9:30 am - 3:30 pm. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

The workshop is open to participants who are familiar with and adhere to the SURJ Mission and Vision statements. The workshop has a suggested donation of $10-$35 to cover event expenses, future organizing within SURJ - Bay Area and our partner organizations. No one turned away for lack of funds. Contact: for a scholarship, or with any questions or concerns.

Disability access notes: We will provide accessibility notes in the space when we confirm the location. Please check back. Sign language interpretation will be provided if we receive a specific request via e-mail or phone before December 23. Contact: with any questions or concerns.
