An excerpt from the Allies Conference website:
“The purpose of the conference is to learn how to become an Ally by engaging in-depth conversations about difficult topics. You already see that being an Ally is not as simple as wanting to be one.
This conference is not one where you go and sit for the whole day, listening to presenter after presenter. We will spend the weekend tackling challenging conversations. Some of that work will be observing discussions modeled by people who have longtime experience in the interpreting field. The rest of the work will be done by participating in many small group discussions where each person in the group will be part of the group discussion.
Participants will learn communication tools from the facilitators and have the opportunity, repeatedly, to apply these tools throughout the conference.
Come to the conference to be actively engaged. There will be support for those who are new to the idea of being an Ally. There will be many opportunities for participants to bring up questions, concerns, and ideas.
YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS CONFERENCE!”
We recognize that the Allies Conference is not right for everyone, but if allyship is something you aspire to, the Allies2023 is an ideal, hands-on, opportunity to practice doing the work.

*For your friends who haven’t been to an Allies Conference, we offer this description:
The concept of an Allies Conference may be new and not that easy to describe. It is not a workshop, but rather a venue for dialogue and exploration. It is a place to come if you are interested in deep conversations. It is a place where many interpreters over the years experienced some of the most important learning opportunities in their careers.
