Mission Statement

Created in 2003, the mission of the Allies Project at Macalester College is to form a group of staff, students, faculty and alumni who are committed to creating safer and supportive environments and communities through education for all people – taking into consideration multiple social identities such as sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, class, age, or ability. The Allies Project Workshop participants will have the opportunity to connect personal experiences and social identities, to better understand (in)abilities to act in resisting forms of oppression.

Learning Objectives:

  • Connect personal experience and social identities, to better understand (in)abilities to act in resisting forms of oppression.
  • Participants will be able to express ideas, identify behaviors, and actualize practices that promote action towards social justice and equity.
  • Utilize real-life scenarios to practice interrupting microaggressions and oppressive behaviors that adversely impact marginalized people and communities.
  • Self-reflect on and self-access the concepts on best social justice practices and values

Foundational vs. Developmental: Both are open to all campus community members.

  • Foundational: Interactive workshops for new and emerging allies and social justice content that is broader! As the 2 Foundational workshops below are the same, please only RSVP for the one you are able to attend.
  • Developmental: A more focused topical workshop that speaks to certain social justice issues that complement the foundational workshop. ​

Allies Project Workshops are currently suspended. For more information about the Allies Project Workshops, e-mail dml@macalester.edu.
