Solidarity and LGBTQ+ Liberation
June 15, 2022

In this training we define solidarity and draw distinctions between traditional allyship and solidarity. We share historical and modern examples of solidarity, and offer suggestions for practicing solidarity by getting involved and taking action. Participants will recognize that we all have something at stake in the fight against oppression, and that by liberating the most oppressed, we all can achieve freedom.

Featuring Guest Speaker: Kristen Godfrey, MSW, Director of LGBTQ+ Affairs at University of Arizona
