RECORDING: Being an Activist for Communities Outside of Your Own

PRIDE: Championing LGBTQIA+ Leaders & Allies

Author and LGBT+ Educator Kryss Shane and Adjunct Professor of Jewish Studies Dr. Karen L. Uslin take a deep dive into how to be an activist for a community you are not a part of. Kryss and Karen will address such questions as, 'How do you respond when someone assumes you are a member of the group due to your activism?' and 'Are there any aspects of this work you do not do because you do not feel qualified as a non-member of the group?'
