Here’s how you can get involved with NYU’s Ally Week

#NYUAllyWeek is back

It’s that time of year again – NYU’s Ally Week, an annual week of events and discussions on campus that aim to promote ‘allyship’ around campus.

As outlined on their website, NYU’s Ally Week “creates opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators to deepen their understanding of the experiences of others, and raise awareness of the individual and collective injustices that confront many in our society.”  This week seeks to educate students about how to become an ally and the responsibilities it takes to be one. As minority groups continue to marginalized and targeted across the world, understanding what it means to be an ally is as important as ever. Here are the on-campus events to look out for this week.
