This 4-hour training is designed for individuals who wish to learn more about what it means to be an ally to people belonging to a marginalized or targeted community. In this workshop, participants will learn skills related to generating awareness of how to leverage privilege for social justice change, initiating courageous conversations and dialogues across differences, consciousness-raising in speaking up and disrupting patterns of oppression and sustaining social change strategies that are consistent and meaningful.
Presenters use didactic and experiential exercises, media, small and large group dialogue and worksheets to cultivate a deeper understanding of building community and advocacy. Participants will learn best practices in self-education and accountability skills helpful in being a strong ally and a community builder.
