In this workshop for LGBTQA+, straight, and cisgender people (and people whose identities overlap), you will learn and practice interrupting systemic oppression of LGBTQA+ people in your classrooms, offices, and conversations. You will learn about and practice identifying how multiple systems of oppression (including racism, ableism, classism, and sexism) overlap with heterosexism and cisgenderism on our campus. You will reflect on your own social identities, your relationship with systems of oppression, and your roles in interrupting oppression to make campus safer and more welcoming for all LGBTQA+ communities. At the end of this workshop, you will have the opportunity to sign the Ally Program Pledge and receive the Ally Card. Prerequisite: LGBTQA+ Identities (Ally Toolkit Part 1). Note: This workshop is available only for people who self-select or volunteer to attend. If you supervise someone whom you would like to see build their familiarity with LGBTQA+ terms and concepts, please advise them to attend the LGBTQA+ Identities (Ally Toolkit Part 1) workshop.
