With hate crimes and harassment on the rise, knowing how to be a good ally to your fellow Baltimoreans is more important than ever. "No Sexism, No Racism, & No Homophobia Allowed" is a great idea, but how do you implement it in real life? And what is it missing? This workshop should help people recognize some of the privileges they walk around with, as well as provide some skills on how to use it for good. You'll leave with concrete methods to be a better ally for folks that experience all kinds of discrimination. Whether you run a space where people gather, or you're just someone in the crowd, you have the power to interrupt violence and harassment when it happens and help prevent it before it does.
