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
