October Hot Topics Forum: Allyship & Community

Jesse Ross

Thursday, October 13, 2022 at 10 a.m.
Moderated by Special Guest Jesse Ross

A Note From Special Guest Jesse Ross: 

Allyship creates a better world for everyone, including you. In this session, we'll talk about what allyship looks like in action and how you can be a better ally in your community. If you're looking to learn more about allyship and how you can be a better ally to marginalized communities, I encourage you to join us! Allyship is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people.

Be ready to have a conversation about what it looks like to live out allyship and live in proximity to those you want to build allyship with. By attending this session, you will begin to unpack your own privilege and learn how to be an effective ally to marginalized communities. This is an important first step in creating a more just and equitable world for everyone.
