      SURJ Quest For Democracy Day Lobby Visit Workshop

      SURJ Bay Area Quest For Democracy Day Lobby Visit Workshop

      Quest for Democracy Day (Q4D) is an annual statewide lobby day in Sacramento sponsored by Legal Services for Prisoners with Children/All Of Us Or None (LSPC/AOUON) for formerly-incarcerated people, family members with incarcerated loved ones, and allied organizations. Q4D supports pending legislation that affects people impacted by incarceration and for the second year in a row, SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice) is being asked to lobby alongside LSPC/AOUON members coming from all over California.

      Workshop participants will learn how SURJ shows up to lobby in accountability with our partner organizations and the ways that policy combined with grassroots movement can be used as a tool for collective liberation.

      Workshop participants can expect to...

      -Learn about lobby visits and how they fit into SURJ’s larger framework
      -Learn how SURJ shows up to lobby with our partners
      -Practice speaking about policy to a legislative staffer
      -Hear from our Policy partner, Legal Services for Prisoners with Children, on their 2019 policy priorities!

      Tickets are sliding scale, $0 - $10. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. This workshop is a fundraiser for Legal Services for Prisoners with Children. Please bring a cash donation that is meaningful for you.

      SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice), Bay Area chapter, is part of a national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice. There are over 150 chapters and affiliates nationwide. Through community organizing, mobilizing, and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice, with passion and accountability.
