In the context of race and social justice work, an accomplice is someone who assists others in creating a space of inclusion, equity, and safety for all, often at the risk of their own social and/or professional standing and physical well-being. We will discuss how to move yourself from an Ally of LGBTQ+ people to an Accomplice of LGBTQ+ people.
The event will be hosted on Zoom. You will need a computer and a phone as a back-up audio method.
