SURJ Southern Maine/Seacoast, in partnership with Portsmouth Book and Bar, will host an evening of spoken word and performance to raise funds on behalf of Maine and NH organizations centering anti-racism in their work. SURJ is an anti-racism organization working to undermine white support for white supremacy, to help build a racially just society.
SURJ SM/Seacoast is calling for poets and writers to submit and to perform their work on the topic of racial justice. Share your ideas, thoughts and feelings on whiteness, white supremacy, racism, racial injustice, white privilege, environmental racism, and related topics.
Submission content can be poems, essays and opinions. Please limit your performance time to around 5 minutes. Please forward submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 1st.
