Affliction in Allyship is a forum to express and address the complex human element in anti-racism ally work. The ally plays an influential role in anti-racism work, at times lending a voice for those whose cry for humanity fall on deaf ears. The ally makes vital connections to get resources to other activists. Allies risk alienation from family, friends, and opportunities; allies sometimes even put themselves in harm's way to protect the marginalized at protests and so much more. We invite you to listen and contribute to this conversation as we believe your experience is significant, and you will benefit someone else in Allyship. It takes us all, and together we will change the world.
