2 - Allyship

This Taking Up Space episode features conversations on allyship in all of its forms. It can be difficult to understand allyship as it is a multi-faceted, complex idea, and changes in relation to the needs and situations of the individual or individuals you’re supporting.                              

Ann-Bernice Thomas hosts a panel discussion with Tada Hozumi, the author of ‘The Selfish Activist’s Guide to Allyship’, Sharon Doty, the president of the LGBTQ2+ support group ‘PFLAG’, and Bradley Clements, a member of the men’s circle, a branch of UVic’s Anti Violence Project.

This episode includes a short step-by-step guide to allyship and a feature on PFLAG [more].
