This series will consist of a webinar about how to become an ally (Oct. 27) and then will be followed up with two talking circles (either Nov. 3 & 10) for participants who wish to take a deeper look at their privilege and becoming an ally. The Talking Circles are available to participants of the webinar on Oct. 27th and limited to one talking circle per person.

To be an ally requires humility, skill, courage and an acknowledgement of your privilege. The webinar on October 27th will introduce you to what you need to become an ally and take action against oppression. If you are ready to take a look inward at yourself and make positive contributions to your community, register for this webinar and one of the talking circles. Talking Circles require separate registration.
