Please join us for the following workshop, the second in the spring term series.

Allyship in Praxis
Sally Eck
Wednesday May 21st from 7:00 – 9:00 PM

Center for Intercultural Organizing, 700 N. Killingsworth
In this workshop we will analyze the potentially fraught, yet invaluable concept of allyship in social justice practices.  What happens when people self-identify as “allies,” but continue to operationalize privileged practices, unchecked? How do we check ourselves? How do we change the term “ally” from a destination to a journey and an action?  What practical tools can we develop to support our efforts in effective allyship?  In this workshop, we will build skills and strategize collectively; building our consciousness toward using privilege for accountability and for strengthening the movement for social justice.
