I feel like I'm at the very beginning of the "active" part of the continuum, working towards becoming as well-informed as possible by listening to podcasts, reading books, doing this training, and starting a discussion group/book club within my friend group. I recently joined a racial justice group in my town and volunteered to help out at a protest as well as deep canvassing in the community. I know and I worry that this is not enough - I could be doing so much more - but I am trying to recognize that allyship will always be a work in progress, never a destination I will reach and sit comfortably at. I would like to continue to learn as much as I can from the literary and social work and experiences of POC. I think for me, the thing I need to most work on is really, really listening to POC and continually reminding myself that this is not about me.
