So You Want To Be An Ally | Recorded Webinar


This session will focus on the divisions in our society that have been illuminated since the killing of George Floyd and the COVID-19 pandemic, and the effects of those divisions on our mental health. The inequitable allocation of resources continues to divide communities. The most important ways to fight against inequality and injustice are for us to show up as collaborators and to share the costs and risks of advocacy.

Through this event, we will explore:

  • What it means to be an ally, including the risks
  • How to increase the rate of fair and impartial approaches and treatment
  • Skills to decrease harm to marginalized communities
