Being an Ally (the Forum)

13 February, 6:30 pm8:00 pm

Many people see themselves as allies, not themselves marginalised but nonetheless standing alongside members of marginalised groups in their struggle for social justice. The role of more powerful groups can be important, but some attempts at solidarity can also badly fail the very people they intend to help. We reflect on the significant questions and challenges involved in being an ally amidst the changing nature of social movement in the twenty-first century. What does being an ally means? When and why are allies important? And why do some attempts end in failure?
