We are proud to announce the return of the Growing Allies Retreat for Fall 2015!
The retreat will be held on November 14th-15th at the Trotter Multicultural Center. Attendance to the retreat is FREE.
Growing Allies strives to build a community of social justice allies committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment at the University of Michigan and beyond. We envision a community where allies work together and support each other. The retreat is one of the key places where this process begins!
Retreat attendees will participate in experiential exercises, team-building, and dialogue around the topics of affirming identity, building community and being a change agent. Growing Allies views allyhood as a process and recognizes great value in connecting people who are engaged in that process. This retreat focuses on engaging both those who are already involved in social justice and ally development, as well as those who are new to thinking about their role in social justice. All are welcome. Meals and snacks will also be provided. Please note that this is not an overnight retreat.
Participant applications are available HERE and are due October 27th.
Facilitator applications are available HERE and are due October 20th.
