WoC Solidarity: Beyond Performative Allyship
SPACE: CONFERENCE ROOM
WHEN: 6-7.45pm – 7 Mar 2019
TICKETS: Book Now
With the lead up to International Women’s Day, we need to talk about moving beyond superficial allyship.
So get cozy with us for a panel discussion with four women of colour that is all about just that!
We will be deep diving into what solidarity is, how best to use our voices and privileges, discussing antiblack racism and hearing how we as settlers and descendants of colonisers in so-called Australia can be sincere, safe and considerate allies to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We won't come up with all the answers, but, we hope to start a conversation that is a catalyst for genuine solidarity.
