Building Allies aims to work with those who are willing to learn how to identify necessary behavioral and emotional shifts to turn their privilege into change.
who are we?
To work with those who are willing to learn how to identify necessary behavioral and emotional shifts to turn their privilege into change.
We understand that allyship isn’t a destination. Which is why we believe in building active-allies. An active-ally is someone who witnesses an injustice and responds to it in any situation .
Our belief is that everyone can become an active-ally. Both in relation to their work, and within their overall way of being in the world. The more active-allies that marginalized communities have, the greater chance we have of shifting the paradigm and creating a society that nurtures and supports the growth of those most often silenced and oppressed. Whether you’re a professional therapist, educator, intern, caring community member, or otherwise, we believe that being an active-ally takes having actionable items to reference, and clear tools to practice.
