Ally Week

January 25th- 29th is Ally Week 2021!

Allyship is an active and ongoing process of learning and re-evaluating our assumptions. To encourage this, the LGBTQ Resource Center is hosting a series of panels and workshops centered on our Community Groups. Our goal is to provide opportunities to explore topics of race, sexuality, interpersonal relationships, and gender roles as a community. Ally Week provides an opportunity to expand our understanding of personal and shared experiences and talk about how allyship really works.
