How do you practice allyship or act in solidarity? Active Allyship is an educational series focused on how to develop tools to be a better ally. Learn ways to be an ally around ability, race, gender and gender identity, spirituality, sexuality, as well as being an ally to yourself.
This spring, we are introducing the Active Allyship Social Justice Symposium, a half-day forum of workshops beginning with a keynote by Darnell L. Moore, an educator, writer, and Managing Editor/Partner of The Feminist Wire. The Active Allyship Social Justice Symposium is on Friday, March 27, 2015 from 12pm-4pm in the Carl A. Fields Center.
The welcome address is open to students, staff, and faculty. Some of the workshop sessions will be closed to only students and will be indicated on the program.
