About The Event
You’ve heard the term ally, and you want to be there for people. You don’t want to unconsciously contribute to sexism, ableism, racism and other forms of systemic oppression in your life and community. But what to do? What to say? We’re here to help.
Acting as an ally can feel and be complicated. We specialize in breaking down challenging topics and complex concepts into manageable and illuminating pieces. We prioritize intimacy and make learning to act as an ally deeply personal. Our goal is to build the confidence in our participants to address difficult topics with empathy and understanding.
To do so, we investigate the ways in which folks have been socialized to behave, unpack privilege and why it not only enforces unhealthy power dynamics but also limits you, personally. Plan and practice how to respond when you are called in or out, and how to do that for others. Learn about cancel culture, tone policing, radical love, and so much more. This course will be an opportunity to do some inner work, grow as a person, ask hard questions, and be a force for change in your community. Join Justice Movement founders, Natalie and Danya as they guide you through a deep dive into allyship and accountability.What to Expect
In addition to the 3 hour sessions once per week, for a total of 12 hours of facilitated learning and connecting, participants can expect to make time for homework in the way of journaling, reflection, reading and/or listening assignments between session as well as ‘pod’ or small groups - that meet up once/week between meetings.
At Justice Movement we strive to vary our teaching methods and keep things interesting and accessible for a variety of learning styles. We rarely lecture or talk for a long time, and lean heavily on intimate small group sharing, images and tools, and a variety of media (podcasts, articles, videos, poems, etc) for homework. We take breaks during long sessions, and encourage everyone to do what their body needs in order to focus. We also welcome your participation, and love to share the mic. Please let us know if you need specific accommodations, learning tools, or support in order to stay engaged and participate as comfortably as possible.Investment
We offer investment options based on your personal circumstances. This course is offered at a Sliding Scale of from $0-$720+. For a breakdown of where you might fall, go here 'How much should I pay for a sliding scale course'. These options are suggestions and your contribution allows us to continue practicing radical hospitality and offering all of our courses completely sliding scale. If you are unable to contribute financially, or if there is a different amount that works better for you, feel free to choose a custom amount to contribute. Payment plans are also welcome.

Sliding scale takes into account your financial situation and circumstances when setting tuition. Sustaining is the higher end of the scale and intended for those with stable incomes and the ability to save. Your ability to support at the higher end allows the course to offer sliding scale tuition! If the "sustaining" option is not a good fit for you, select general, the default investment amount or accessible, intended for students, and others who are getting by but don’t have much extra in their budget. For those with little-to-no income, especially in these difficult economic times, Guest passes are available. If a payment plan would make the course more accessible to you, select Payment Plan and write to us with what will work best for you. If you have the ability and are keen to pay for your spot and one or more others select the Redistributive option.
