Your journey to true allyship

In this 2021 TEDxSeattleWomen talk, Talisa Lavarry explains how true allyship is opening doors for the marginalized that they cannot open for themselves. She outlines three key tactics for us to employ on our journey to allyship and gives examples for how these play out in real life.

Talisa leaves us with an appeal to use her advice to create a personalized allyship plan and journey, and reminds us that the things many of us take for granted may be the very thing that changes, or even saves, the life of someone who is marginalized.
