!

Today I went to the Atlanta SURJ meeting that we were phonebanking to get
people in Georgia to attend earlier this week.

It was so nice!  It seemed along the lines of the training that Topher and
I went through on Sunday--it was enthusiastic, organized, and allowed for
people to talk to each other.

It was specifically named that SURJ started as an organization for white
people to organize other white people for racial justice, since that was
what was asked by Black organizations being flooded by white
people wanting to help.

I didn't stay long because it seemed to be all people in Georgia, but I got
excited about going to meetings for SURJ Bay Area.

I signed up for their newsletter <https://www.surjbayarea.org/join.html>,
and they recently included an invitation to an introductory SURJ meeting on
7/7.  I have a prior commitment, so I probably can't go, but there are a
lot of other events (like, daily) included in the newsletter.
