SURJ Denver Community Meeting: Neighborhood Organizing!

September 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for our quarterly community meeting! When you RSVP “yes,” please also fill out the poll in the posts below to let us know which neighborhood group to include you in!

This meeting, we will be connecting local SURJ community members in your local neighborhoods (where you live and/or work) for organizing! Everything from local dinners and book clubs to calling in your neighbors about gentrification and police to neighborhood networking platforms like NextDoor will be discussed, all rooted in accountability to local leadership of color.

The majority of this meeting will be spent in small groups based on local neighborhood affiliations to connect and explore local organizing opportunities.

Come connect with others who are committed to dismantling white supremacy and supporting people of color-led organizing in Denver and learn how YOU can play a role in this work!

There will be food and community building, so come join us! Reach out and bring a friend – or five!

We will send out summary info afterwards, so if you can’t join us in person, you’ll still know what’s new and how you can join in the work.

6:00-6:30 is community gathering time. We’ll have food and we encourage bringing sharable foods as we find snacking with one another is a great way to connect and make our space feel warm and community building. Many gluten-free and veg* folks, as an FYI. If you contribute, bring an ingredients card so we know what’s up.

*********************************************************

Childcare will be available and will include an engaging activity for any kiddos who want to join! Please let us know ages, allergies, and number of children by Monday morning, 9/25 at 9am. Kids could also hang with you if child care doesn’t feel like a good option.
