Ally Week: is a national dialogue about how everyone -- in and out of school -- can work to become better allies to LGBT youth.

We know that allyship is about more than broadly supporting LGBT people; it's an active, ongoing process of advocating for LGBT youth (and other marginalized groups) without speaking for them or over them. During Ally Week, we challenge one another to think critically about what allyship means, how we are allies to others, and what kind of allies we seek out for ourselves
