19 Dec Empathy + Allyship
This is an open discussion and council on how we can be “Allys” in today’s day and age. This is more than race or color, sex, gender, orientation, faith, nationalism, ability, class, beliefs… this is about all of that AND a deep desire to dissolve that which separates us by being heard, seen, and empathized with and doing the same for all.
We show up as we are, knowing there’s always more to learn + remember. We show up holding what we’re holding. It’s all not only welcomed here, but it’s also needed. We take responsibility for how we choose to show up.
When we come together in the shared space of council we see the experiences that unite us, we connect through differences, we empathize with challenges, and we support and resource one another in ways we couldn’t do on our own because we’re not alone in our efforts to create change. This intensive will offer tangible dos and don’ts, tools and wisdom to walk away and step into the inner and outer actions needed to be an ally, which is really just doing the right thing.
This is a liberatory space that intends to center, tend to, and prioritize marginalized identities.
Empathy + Allyship will be shared by Luna Grace Isbell-Love.
