How to Be a Better Ally: Local Indigenous Communities
A follow up to our More Than a Word screening
Thursday, December 5, 2019 · 4 PM - 5:30 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 session serves as a follow-up to the Mundo Lingo: More Than A Word film screening, with particular attention given to learning about the Indigenous experience in the DMV area. Participants will reflect on their identities and evaluate how they impact their lives. Contextual information will be shared from the More Than A Word film screening, the history of the Red Power movement, and current Indigenous activism. This will be followed by a discussion on how to be an ally and advocate for those the Indigenous community.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! Need to request disability-based accommodations or have any questions? Contact Campus Life's Mosaic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
