Showing Up For Racial Justice-MN is raising funds to purchase Black Lives Matter yard signs which will be distributed in predominantly white neighborhoods to create a visible presence of white people in solidarity with the movement for black lives.

 Showing Up for Racial Justice-Minnesota (SURJ-MN) is helping to organize white people for racial justice and to connect People of Color and white people while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice ongoing efforts.A vital part of this effort is reaching out directly to other white people, which is what this project is all about!

Many white people are looking for ways to take action in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. SURJ-MN believes it is critical for white people to build a broad base of other white people who can move together as part of a multi-racial movement for racial justice.

As part of this building process, SURJ-MN is taking up the project of door-knocking to distribute Black Lives Matter yard signs in predominantly white neighborhoods. By initiating conversations around race with other white people, we hope to build larger bases of white people to take action for racial justice. And, by asking white people to put up signs in their yards or windows, we are providing them with an immediate action step: Making their support for Black Lives Matter public and helping to create a visible presence of white people in solidarity with the movement for black lives.

SURJ-MN needs approximately $3,000 to purchase 500 Black Lives Matter yard signs. We say “approximately” because the exact cost is based on the number of signs we are able to order—more signs means cheaper (per unit) signs! We are purchasing the signs from a Black-Owned Union printing shop in Minneapolis, so the funds will stay in the local community.

Any funds raised in excess of the cost for 500 yard signs will be donated to #BlackLivesMatter Minneapolis.

Your donation, in any amount, will help SURJ-MN carry on its mission of organizing white people for racial justice, working to connect people, and supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts.

Thank you for your generosity. And don’t forget to share this message (repeatedly!) with your connections on social media!
