A House Party to Protect Juristac
Led by one of UUCPA’s Justice Partners, SURJ @ Sacred Heart
In this online “House Party”, members of SURJ @ Sacred Heart (the San José chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice) will provide history and context around the current Amah Mutsun Tribal Band’s fight to Protect Juristac, their home and most sacred land right here in Southern Santa Clara County, from destruction as a gravel mine. During the presentation, participants will learn, reflect and take action together to support local Indigenous rights, and environmental protection. Perfect for those interested in taking tangible steps toward decolonization, environmental and racial justice in the South Bay. The content has been reviewed and approved by Amah Mutsun Tribal Band Chairman Valentine Lopez, and by Green Foothills. It was developed based on the Juristac Sacred Grounds presentation by South Bay Indigenous Solidarity. Check out https://www.surjatsacredheart.org/indigenous-solidarity

If you would like to attend this session and are not subscribed to the email list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Zoom information for the session will be sent to this list early next week. We welcome new attendees at any time!
All people of whatever race or background are welcome to attend any or all sessions. We call the group “White Folks . . . ” because we recognize that the work of dismantling white supremacy is for white people to do. It’s also important to have anti-racism learning spaces for white folks, where they can grapple with new ideas about racism and speak candidly about their fears and misconceptions. It can be painful for people of color to witness these conversations, so we have created this space apart from the main body of the congregation.
