We Want To Be Better… Allies

Each week the girls identify something they’re not super great at and challenge themselves to be better. So this week, in light of March 31st being Transgender Visibility Day, Annie and Bianka learn about transgender issues and how to be better allies to the trans community. Which I joined them as a special guest speaker.  Let me tell you what amazing fun it was!

Being a good ally is identifying your own privileges and stepping up to allow underprivileged voices speak for themselves instead of speaking over them all the time, no matter what the culture or diverse background is. Also remember it is OK to have a laugh and have some fun once and awhile.
