How To Be A Better Ally: Economically Disadvantaged People
Exploring Socioeconomic Challenges in America
Monday, April 8, 2019 · 5 PM - 7 PM
This co-facilitated workshop series focuses on various underrepresented and/or marginalized populations. Our goal of the series is to provide UMBC community members with the basic practices for allyship, specifically for the highlighted population.
This event will discuss how poorness is viewed in the United States and the common misconceptions about economically disadvantaged people. Topics will include adoption, economic racism, shelters, charities and the experiences of people of color within lower socioeconomic statuses.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! Need to request disability-based accommodations or have any questions?
