Bite-Sized Learning: Allyship or Accomplice - How to take your allyship to the next level

Wednesday, September 21, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

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.
