On May 18th the Diversity Forum continued our theme of Becoming Allies with a specific focus on "Getting Involved". Becoming an ally necessitates an ongoing commitment to dismantling systems of oppression. How can you get involved with local organizations, led by marginalized communities, who are doing this work?
This month our speakers shared about how to engage in ways that are healthy and respectful of the leadership of marginalized communities, as well as specific opportunities to get involved with their organizations:
- Marsha Banks, AMiracle4Sure
- Gloria Merrick, Latino Hispanic American Community Center
- Louie Marven, LGBT Center of Central PA
Thank you to Widener Law Commonwealth for hosting us.
