The Allies Guide to Advocacy webinar was originally presented on March 19, 2021. We hope this session empowers you in your role as an ally in your community. We encourage you to use the information in this presentation to confront racism. These materials may be used as a guide to challenge oppressive behaviors and structures, bring about cultural awareness, and promote diversity and inclusivity. It takes everyone to build an inclusive, equitable and just world.

As part of our 2021 Stand Against Racism initiative we launched our 7 Day Allies Advocacy Challenge. Through this challenge we encouraged community members to use their voice to shine a light on inequality, spark dialogue, engage and step in as allies for vulnerable groups. For each of the 7 days we provided steps community members could take to grow while creating change in their community.  The 7 day challenge is an expansion of the Allies guide to advocacy webinar. You can still take the challenge, see below.
