Workshop: Practical Allyship

Do you ever feel guilty about privileges you have? Curious about how to leverage your own access to resources and experience in support of justice and fairness for everyone?

While talking about our privilege can be hard and even dangerous, we should not feeling guilty for unearned privilege, and instead hold on to our privileges and take responsibility to be aware of them and fight/speak up on behalf of others without such privileges and opportunities. This training will help participants to learn to do so more effectively and help them prepare for a lifelong, ever-evolving journey of allyship.

Presented by Dara Snyder (YWCA of Greater Portland) & Choya Adkison-Stevens (Oregon Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence)
