Ally is a verb; allyship means action. How do you stand up for your friends, loved ones, and values? In this session, we will create a common language and use that language to describe and detail tools you can use with confidence and fall back on when things get tough. There will be exercises to engage participants and actionable tips you can put into practice right away.
This will be a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where your questions are completely welcome, but will deal with potentially triggering topics. Allies and 2SLGBTQ+ folks both are equally welcome.
