Allyship and Action: Webinar Series

Strengthening our advocacy for racial justice and sustainability

The Alaska Center envisions a thriving, just and sustainable Alaska for present and future generations. For this to become a reality, we need to understand true histories and recognize the intersectionality of racial justice, climate justice, and democracy. This requires building equitable partnerships and dismantling the systems and practices that perpetuate extraction, division, and oppression. We are excited to partner with Native Movement to offer a training series for our volunteer leaders, activists, and supporters to support us all in becoming stronger advocates for equitable change.

This series will address power and privilege, colonization and decolonization, white supremacy culture, and white fragility. We will contextualize these issues with examples of historical and current conservation, climate, and democracy advocacy and identify ways to apply learning to action. Our hope is that participants will come away with a shared understanding of the history, systems, and behaviors that need to be addressed, and tools to actively advocate for a just and sustainable Alaska.

We invite you all to apply for this series, no matter where you are on your learning journey. We have a limited number of spots and will prioritize people who can attend all four sessions.

You’ll find more details below.
