Paths Network Allyship Training
The Practice of Authentic Allyship
Course Modules open March 8
6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
When human rights are at risk, people need to stand together. But how do we stand with each other in a way that truly puts people who are vulnerable first? How do we make the vulnerable the “center of the universe” without compromising our own?
Today many are confronting the reality of how our caste system impacts people of color, LGBTQ+, and our society as a whole.
Being an authentic ally is more than wearing a flag pin. It is not something we claim for ourselves, but rather a recognition by groups that we are consistently and effectively supporting in their work for human and civil rights.
IN THIS COURSE, YOU WILL LEARN:
- how to share your own story as an experience
- gain a better understand of the story of our nation and how there are intentional rules and laws that create bias and separation and inequity between people
- how you can stand for and with each other right now and tomorrow
- learn what authentic allyship is, what it is not, and key skills, strategies and awareness to stand with others
Standing with and for each other is not an addition to our lives. It doesn’t take-a-way from us individually. It is a key part of what it means to be human and provides hope for a more just and equitable world for all of us.
As Ellie Wiesel said, “Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must — at that moment — become the center of the universe.”
