Conversations of Empowerment: How to Be an Ally, Featuring Erika Koss

TD presents African Heritage Month

If you have ever wanted to be an ally to someone from a marginalized community you are not a part of and are unsure of how you can help, this is the conversation for you. Jesse Nervais, founder of Dreadlocks and Kindness, is joined by Erika Koss, founder of A World In Your Cup, for a conversation on allyship.

Rooted in the belief that it is the everyday kindness of ordinary people that lead to long term positive changes in our communities, this talk focuses on the tangible elements of inclusion and social justice that empower the countering of discrimination in the world around us.  

This event is part four in a four part series.

In partnership with Metroworks, Stone Hearth Bakery, A World in Your Cup, and Dreadlocks & Kindness

Central Library - Wednesday May 25th @ 7:30pm - 9:00pm Paul O'Regan Hall | Floor 1 Adults | Teens
