    About this event

    Created by Fiona Oliphant, Esq, '93 and facilitated by Tyree Oredein, DrPH, '98 and Jessica Strauss, LCSW, '77, this popular occasional workshop is intended for Alums to grow and deepen their understanding of effective allyship in anti-racism work. We will explore in depth the most effective ways to offer support, to intervene, to plan and execute action with and in solidarity with BIPOC folx. Through presentation and discussion, white alums will have the opportunity to challenge themselves: what is your motivation?, what are you willing to give, and give up, to dismantle white supremacy? BIPOC are invited to grow stronger allyship with one another and to share their experiences, positive and challenging, of working in alliance with well-meaning white folks.
