Discussion: Ally Development

If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But, if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.

— Lila Watson, Aboriginal activist

The above quote captures one aspect of ally development. The Edwards article provides important information about becoming an ally and developing advocacy skills, focusing on effective identity development, consistency, and sustainability. As a starting point, consider these questions regarding the article:

  • How does the Watson quote mirror those ideas?
  • How can you identify, remain consistent, and practice sustainability in your ally development?

In this Discussion, review the article and explore the topic of social justice ally development.
