Action Into Being: Growing as An Ally

May 1, 2016
2:00pm  -  2:50pm
Gallery of California History — Level 2

The struggle for liberation is beautiful and hard. We may intellectually understand–or spiritually believe–that, as Desmond Tutu says, “My humanity is caught up, is inextricably bound up, in yours.” But when it comes to joining hands and locking elbows, there are groups of people we don’t include. We might repost something on Facebook or have an intellectual conversation about intersectionality, but we don’t show up when it really counts. Let’s talk about what it means to value those with whom we don’t share identity. Let’s share strategies for being allies–not as an action we can choose or not choose to take, but as a way of being.

 Conversation series events are limited to 30 participants on a first-come, first serve basis.
