Do you seek to promote racial equity as an ally, but don’t know where to start? Join us for Service Never Sleeps‘ half day allyship workshop. This training will equip you with tools to be an active ally for racial justice through methods of centering people of color, influencing others, and continuing your own self-work journey. You’ll leave this intensive fast-paced workshop feeling committed to the allyship lifestyle, and prepared to facilitate change in all of your spaces.
Whitney Parnell, originally developed the concept of the 8-hour dream in college: If an individual went to bed amidst the current state of social injustice, and a fraction of society committed to serving in one small way, that same individual would awaken from a full night’s sleep to witness a tremendous change. Service Never Sleeps launched in 2015 as a program under the Aspen Institute’s Center for Urban Innovation’s Urban Innovation Lab. Through the Aspen Institute’s year-long incubation, Service Never Sleeps has emerged as one of the most innovative nonprofits of its kind as the go-to for effective Allyship. 1200 Allies trained since 2017.
