Support SURJ SF's 2021 Fundraiser:
Can't Stop, Won't Stop!

Community Stops White Supremacy so in 2021 we Can't Stop Won't Stop Showing Up for Racial Justice! #CSWS

SURJ San Francisco is running our first fundraising campaign of 2021 to raise money for BIPOC-led racial justice organizations and bolster our efforts to undermine white support for white supremacy and help build a racially just society.

If everyone on our newsletter mailing list raised or contributed just $23 we'd meet our goal of $50,000. At least half of the money raised in this campaign will be passed along directly to local BIPOC-led partner orgs. The remainder will go to cover fiscal sponsor administrative costs, rent spaces and pay for speakers at SURJ events and be passed along to support SURJ chapters organizing in rural areas. Please give today or forward to your friends and loved ones who want to be part of the ongoing fight as part of a powerful multi-racial, cross-class movement to force the system of white supremacy to crumble.

At least half of the funds raised by this fundraiser will be passed along directly to the following Black, Indigenous and People of Color-led grassroots organizations in the Bay Area: No New SF Jails, Abundant Beginnings, Wealth and Disparities in the Black Community and Justice for Mario Woods, AROC, Faith in Action, Al Otro Lado, Coleman Advocates, DPH Must Divest, CURB, TGIJP, and the SF Bayview Newspaper.

Rather donate directly to a local social justice organization? SURJ SF supports fundraising efforts that follow the leadership of and meet the self-identified needs of SF-based BIPOC-led organizations. Please consider a donation to one of the groups below.

Ramaytush Ohlone—Yunakin Land Tax

The Ramaytush (pronounced rah-my-toosh) are the original peoples of the San Francisco Peninsula. Prior to the arrival of the Spanish, the Ramaytush Ohlone numbered approximately 1500 persons, but by the end the Mission Period only a few families had survived. Today, only one lineage is know to have produced living descendants in the present. Those descendants comprise the membership of the Association of Ramaytush Ohlone (ARO) today.

The Yunakin Land Tax is a financial contribution made by residents who live along the San Francisco Peninsula in San Francisco County, in San Mateo County, and the portion of Santa Clara County northwest from Cupertino. You can make a one time or recurring contribution.
