Showing Up for Each Other: On Being an Ally for LGBTQ Justice
What is an ally? What does it mean to be co-conspirators with and for each other? We will discuss being an ally for LGBTQ and gender non-conforming justice in today’s highly charged social and political climate. In small and large groups we will explore ways to work together in solidarity to create positive change. All are welcome, whether these ideas are brand new to you or you’ve been exploring them for many years.
