Ally Skills Workshop 

an ally is someone who stands up in support of members of another social identity group; typically a member of a dominant group standing beside members of a group being treated unjustly or discriminated against. The Ally Skills Workshop teaches participants ways to use their influence or power to intervene when someone else is being targeted or excluded. It does not focus on educating people about the basics of how bias and oppression work.
