Welcome to Ally Week!


Next Ally Week will be September 25-29, 2017. 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 LGBTQ people; it's an active, ongoing process of advocating for LGBTQ youth (and other marginalized groups) without speaking for them or over them. During #AllyWeek, 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. 

Supported by over 20 endorsers, Ally Week is an opportunity for us to recognize what true allyship looks like for each of us. 

How to Participate in Ally Week
