PRACTICAL ALLYSHIP: A Workshop with Mark Damon Harvey

Many would agree that a good anti-bias and anti-racism course should offer some strategies and at least a few actionable solutions. This course focuses on the structures of prejudice and the linguistic phrases that are used repeatedly in everyday exclusionary behavior.



Once the cultural drivers behind this are understood, it is possible to design non-confrontational interventions that have a long-term impact.



The goal is to trigger conflict in the aggressor's internal thought patterns to the point where they abandon them in favor of (new) patterns that better fit with a multicultural perspective. Practical Allyship uses people's entrenched tribal thinking to facilitate new alliances between marginalized and referent cultures, or in short, to re-tribalize.
