“Showing Up” During Threats of Austerity-03/23/23

Come join SURJ on Thursday, March 23rd from 12-1:30pm for our first Spring monthly meeting:
Showing Up” During Threats of Austerity

We’ll discuss ways to show up for racial and economic justice in this pivotal moment for public higher education in New York City! We’ll hear from SURJ and PSC members about ways to get involved in shaping the NY State budget (scheduled to pass in early April) and our CUNY contract (currently in negotiation). Faculty, Staff, and Students welcome! Zoom info below.

About SURJ: SURJ at LaGuardia is an ally/affinity group for staff and faculty who do not identify as people of color but who want to address and confront racism on campus and beyond. The group serves as a platform for anti-racism and as a space for elevating the discussion of white privilege and systemic racism. It works to promote reflection, awareness, learning, and strategies for personal and collective action around these issues. We are a chapter of the national SURJ organization, which is a network of groups and individuals that work to organize and move white people to action as part of a multi-racial coalition for justice.
