Become an Ally, and help us promote social justice through bridge-building!

SNS facilitates a half-day training workshop that establishes the new term, “Allyship,” as an active way of life, revolving around the “CLAIM” acronym—Care, Learn, Act, Influence, and Maintain. The workshop teaches individuals about the causes of social injustice, how to be effective allies for marginalized communities, and how to actively influence and educate others.

Care - Learn - Act - Influence - Maintain

Care

Facilitate a safe space for participants to actively reflect on their positions (and privilege) in society

Learn

Provide a comprehensive understanding of social systems and implicit biases that lead to or maintain social injustices

 

Act

Define the meaning of “Allyship,” and outline the various ways that it can be executed in regular and/or targeted behavior

Influence

Teach comprehensive action steps for behaving as an ally, and tools for engaging individuals in the matter

 

Maintain

Secure commitments from participants to live actively as allies who understand that the Allyship is ongoing, and that CLAIMing should be a cyclical process of enhanced personal growth and impact.
