“For me, the movement that Surge represents is the intentional and active creation of a collective community. This collectivism, by its very nature, lays the foundation for truly anti-racist work. To be part of the Surge movement is to be a unit in a team of folks who are committed to liberation and equity, being surrounded by people who support, challenge, and lift me – and being counted on to do the same. It also means working as a unit to truly reimagine and re-create our world.”
