On the ally continuum I believe that I am at the awareness phase. I hope to move on to the next two but I think that for now I just need to become more aware of how to be a good ally. I would love to become active and to be an advocate. I do believe that I will come to those points at different times with different groups. I think that with my children I am ready to be active and advocate. But I think that with other groups, especially ones with people of color, that my place right now is to gain awareness from listening to people of color and to others that are further along in their allyship than I am.
