Become a Better Ally: Daily Habits of an Anti-Racist

It is not enough to think of yourself as an ally. The word “ally” is a verb. To ally one’s
self to others is to actively and consistently engage in visible work for justice and social
change. What are you doing to integrate anti-racism actions into your daily life?
Being committed to anti-racism work is about building new habits, continual education,
sustained action and becoming more fluent in talking to others about racism.
Sometimes it’s hard to just get started. This 4-week, 15 minutes a day program will
assist you in becoming a better ally.

This fall, two separate virtual 4-week sessions are being offered to the Putnam County
community: September 13 – October 10th and October 18th – November 13th. Each
session will begin with a one-hour orientation. Each week, participants will receive a list
of resources to independently listen to/read/watch along with a weekly action.
Additionally, each week participants will be paired with a buddy to talk to about the
resources/actions. There will also be a weekly opportunity to talk in a larger group
setting. The hope for this program is that it will create a habit of spending time each day
doing anti-racism work and assist participants in becoming more comfortable talking to
others about racial issues.

This program is sponsored by the Greencastle League of Women Voters in partnership
with the NAACP – Greencastle Branch #3051, Gobin Church, and Ivy Tech – Greencastle Campus.
