On Being an Ally

An ally is someone who:

  • Addresses issue, not just incident;
  • Mobilizes and organizes to respond to issue without prompting from target group member;
  • Is willing to take risks that may affect one’s place, position/and authority within their dominant group;

What members of targeted groups should be able to expect from allies:

Respect, support, recognition;

That they use their power to promote social justice;

That they will “do their own work” (reflect on personal prejudices, learn more about issues of target group, for example);
