Stop Being an Ally, Start Being an Accomplice
Date Thursday June 10, 1:15 PM EST
The term allyship has become unfortunately homogenized in the past few years. It's arguable that we are now past the point of self-appointed allyship and what the Indigenous community truly needs now, more than ever, are accomplices. In this panel we define the difference between allyship and accompliceship to provide a better roadmap to truly reciprocal relationships.
Speakers to be announced shortly.
