Youth continue their work toward becoming better allies.
Ask who brought back Handout 1, Ally Actions 2, from the last workshop. Acknowledge those who did and remind everyone that this is a long-term Faith in Action activity and they will be asked to bring the handout back for every workshop.
Solicit volunteers to discuss any observations they had during Phase 2.
Pass out Handout 2, Ally Action 3. Tell the group that they will move along the continuum from Phase 3, Recognizing, but No Action, to Phase 4, Educating Self. Ask youth to read some of the actions under Phase 4 from the Oppression Continuum that they might take to move from Phase 3 to Phase 4. Suggest they pick one or two to focus on for this phase.
Ask everyone to note on Handout 2, Ally Action 3, the date, the group they want to be an ally to, and the answer to the first question, “What action do you want to take?” Ask them to answer the additional questions if applicable.
Ask participants to bring this handout back to the next workshop when they will commit to another step along the continuum to being a better ally.
