Solidarity and Allyship
Thursday, April 11, 6:00–8:00 p.m.

The session focuses on how oppression shows up in different levels in our day to day lives, and provides a model for participants to respond within their own personal relationships: families, friend groups, and organizations. Through guided dialogue and self-reflection, participants will come away with a deeper understanding of their influence and concrete ideas of their own “next step.”
