BASIC PROTOCOLS FOR BECOMING A GENUINE ALLY TO ABORIGINAL PEOPLE:
So you have read all the books, watched the documentaries, listened to podcast, followed Aboriginal social media accounts maybe even marched and you are still left wondering;
How do you become a genuine ally in real life?
How do I show up/ level up?
How can I genuinely help?
I have no idea where to start or who to contact in my area!
What does all of the above look like?
Becoming an ally is a life long process of building relationships it is not something that is self defined, it is built on trust, active listening, education, transparency, consistency and accountability - it involves unlearning a lot of what you may know in this moment to be true!
