If you’re new to SURJ Chicago, a great place to get involved is at our monthly chapter meeting. We meet every second Thursday of the month between 6:30 and 8:30 pm at various locations. Chapter meetings may focus on one campaign, a training or racial justice issue affecting the Chicago community.
Show up to learn about the ongoing campaigns SURJ Chicago is supporting, share ideas and questions you have about racial justice and to get connected to organizations doing work in Chicago.
At each meeting, we “pass the hat” or collect donations for a cause or organization, usually an accountability partner.
Find out what events are coming up for you to show up to.
Get the latest information on local events, trainings, campaign and meetings by signing up for the SURJ Chicago mailing list.
