The Critical Role Allies Play in the Work of Dismantling Structures of Racism

Tuesday, September 22 2020 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM Location: Virtual Event

This talk focuses on acknowledging each of our responsibilities in supporting the current civil rights moment. We will talk about ways to identify what it means to be an ally, the role we play as allies, and what activism looks like. Our goal is to discuss how each of us can work to dismantle racism. We will talk about how we can relieve the emotional labor of others and why “call out” and “cancel culture” can be deleterious to the social justice movement. In this session we will also identify opportunities to move our organizations and our nation forward during this time. We must do the work!
