How to Ally

Allyship

Allyship: "Black people do not need allies. We need people to stand up and take on the problems borne of oppression as their own, without remove or distance. We need people to do this even if they cannot fully understand what it’s like to be oppressed for their race or ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, class, religion, or other markers of identity. We need people to use common sense to figure out how to participate in social justice".

Roxane Gay (author of Bad Feminist) in her article for Marie Claire, “On Making Black Lives Matter.”
