The last few years have brought many people new awareness of our collective societal challenges and the need for multiple perspectives involved in overcoming them.
The solutions of the past have brought us along the path of progress but humanity still has a long way to go. We each have so much to learn to be our best selves and true allies to each other.
Allies Academy formed to address these needs with compassion, education, and direct connections that are accessible to everyone.
Changing one person so that they can change many is at the core of our philosophy. Truly sustainable change requires personal connection to both the material and each other.
With a focus on presenting a range of viewpoints, experiences, and knowledge; we can achieve exponential results.
Intention and clear purpose guide us to create more opportunity, deeper understanding - of ourselves and others - while designing the world we want now and in the future.
The global diaspora of beings seeking an evolved personal and societal existence are whom we see as our community members.
Intersectionality affects both marginalization and privilege. The similarities of power and privilege are far greater than the differences.
No matter where they are from, who they are, how they identify, and what they know; everyone ready to work for an equitably just world for all is welcome here.
It takes all sorts of folk to improve the world, a wide range of topics need to be explored to expand our perspectives, and intersectional guidance to show us what we don't know. We have both Guides and Experiential Intersection Experts (EIE)...and some teammates who are both.
Guides lead topic based activities, present multi-intersection information, and skill development opportunities. EIEs engage practical experience combined with personal expertise and present it all through the lens of their identity's intersections.
Everyone wants their pain to end...needs the world to continue...hopes for humanity to evolve. At Allies Academy we believe that, not only is this possible, but inevitable if we focus on people before policy.
We can see a brighter future than the one we currently face...a sustainable world brought to fruition by new ways of interacting, enhanced perspectives, and shared commitment to growth.
By doing this work with integrity and truth we hope to help everyone see it too.
Let us know what you think and how we are doing...we'll post it here.
Adaptation is how humanity has survived this long and we are committed to continual review for consistent improvement.
