(French) National Webinar: At the intersection of allyship and oppression: How to be an ally in an increasingly diverse world

22 January @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

12pm to 1pm EDT

(Please note this workshop is being offered in French.)

The concept of being an “ally” is now in common parlance; after all, “it’s 2020”. But what do we do when being an ally is complicated? How, for example, can I be an ally to 2SLGSBTQ+ people and to people of colour? How do I correct myself when I make a mistake? Join us for an open, practical, and interactive discussion.
