As someone who is passionate about social justice, what can I do? In this workshop, we break allyship and solidarity into two primary categories: what one does to address oppression in the moment, and the contribution to ongoing social change. Participants will learn intervention techniques and will look at their own strengths and areas of influence to determine effective, personalized ways to engage in ongoing, sustainable social change.

Learning Objectives

1. Learn about allyship and common misconceptions. 

2.  Increase awareness of participant’s own spheres of influence, and their role as an agent of social change. 

3. Develop skills to appropriately intervene as an ally.
